This month the CIRFA Consortium Agreement has been signed by all partners. Under the leadership of UiT the Arctic University of Norway, 18 partners from universities, research organisations and industry, CIRFA aims at becoming a knowledge hub for research and development on Arctic surveillance technologies, with leading expertise in disciplines such as remote sensing, signal processing, radar technology, RPAS technology, data assimilation and numerical modelling.

The project started up September 2015 and has a duration of up to 8 years.
