Insects sticking to aircraft cause friction and lead to increased fuel consumption. Drones will now be used to test surface coatings designed to limit the insect pests.

A regular scheduled passenger aircraft will for the first time fly with equipment and high-resolution imaging systems normally used on satellites. Scientists believe this is the start of a new era for collecting environmental data and that the aircraft will also increase safety and emergency response in the Arctic.

Snow

The radar onboard the drone Kraken can measure snow depth, image snow layers and see objects under the snow. Earlier in the spring, Norut demonstrated how drones can contribute to emergency preparedness involving avalanches.

Ice

Many people have wondered who they are and what they are up to, these people who regularly wander across the ice wearing a wetsuit and pulling a small rubber boat.

InSAR

KSAT, Norut, and PPO.labs have entered a strategic partnership to establish operational services of spaceborne radar technology to provide ground motion monitoring services.

Resources

A new report provides a combined overview of the Norwegian bio economy by outlining the current industrial uses of resources in forestry, agriculture, fisheries and aquaculture.

Oil spill

Norut senior research scientists Trond Nilsen and Stig Karlstad have published a new report on innovations and framework conditions in oil recovery preparedness in Northern Norway.

Arctic Frontiers

The upcoming conference Arctic Frontiers 2018 in Tromsø - Connecting the Arctic - gives several opportunities to get a taste of the ongoing research taking place at Norut. Get the overview here.

Emergency

Prototypes for the smart road technology of tomorrow may be tested out on North Norwegian roads. Norut wants to provide the emergency services with a better understanding of situations before they arrive.

Marin

Representatives from the fisheries industry, research institutes and management institutions in Norway and Russia are meeting this week in a joint effort to combat marine plastic pollution in the Barents Sea. Norut and Kola Science Center are organising the seminar in Murmansk followed by a beach clean-up in Teriberka.
