About Our Northern Monitoring Services
C-CORE provides several satellite monitoring services to Northern communities, providing increased safety and risk response to these areas. These services also provide a positive economic impact by reducing costs associated with Northern transportation.
The use of satellite-based remote sensing allows C-CORE to provide Northern Transportation Infrastructure monitoring, and support safer and more cost-effective transportation in changing Northern environments.
The target infrastructure includes paved/unpaved runways and highways in permafrost environments, ice roads on rivers and lakes, and sea ice travel on land-fast ice.
Key outcomes include the operationalization of remote sensing monitoring for transportation infrastructure, forecasting risks such as ice break-up, and supporting operational decision-making.
