Developing technology for drones for scaling up from research stations

The main objective of WP 8 is to increase awareness of drone technology and sensors among researchers and research station managers while making industry aware of innovative potential uses requiring drone and sensor development.

The specific aims are to:

  • Increase knowledge on drone technology and current legislation for use of drones among station managers,
  • identify UAV-sensors specifically for arcticDefinitions of the Arctic vary according to environmental, geographical, political, cultural and scientific perspectives. Some scientists define the Arctic as areas having a high latitude, long winters, short, cool summers,... More research or currently underrepresented in the Arctic and
  • produce a best practice scheme for use of drones at arctic research stations.

Ultimately, it is the aim that this cooperation between representatives from science and relevant manufacturers of instruments should lead to new technology set in production.
