The Arctic is undergoing rapid and unprecedented changes due to climate change. Temperatures are rising at a rate three times faster than the global average, resulting in the Arctic becoming more accessible than ever before. With the Northern Sea routes opening up year-round, new direct shipping routes and connections are being established. However, these changes pose significant threats to the fragile Arctic ecosystem, coastal communities, and security. There is a need to ensure that these territories are safe and secure.
New technologies can be considered as enablers to protect and secure these territories. Our challenge aims to support the surveillance, mapping, and monitoring of the Arctic to better understand and manage these threats.
We seek experts in AI systems, sensors, platforms (drones and vehicles). We also aim to work closely with indigenous communities in the region to ensure that their unique perspectives and concerns are heard and incorporated into our work.
The target markets are:
We want to work with experts who share our commitment to inclusive and collaborative solutions, ensuring that local voices are heard and respected throughout the process.
(Ideally) Experience and past projects
