Centre for Integrated Remote Sensing and Forecasting for Arctic Operations

The overall ambition of CIRFA is that the centre will become 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. CIRFA builds on broad competence in remote sensing, and takes advantage of the considerable infrastructure, that has been built up in Tromsø over the recent decades. The core CIRFA team consists of leading senior scientists, PhDs and Post Docs in addition to industry representatives and innovation experts.

CIRFA is hosted by the Department of Physics and Technology at UiT the Arctic University of Norway. CIRFA is one of 17 Centres for Research-based Innovation (SFI) granted in 2014. The purpose of an SFI is to build up and strengthen Norwegian research groups that work in close collaboration with partners from innovative industry and public enterprises. The Research Council of Norway (RCN project number 237906), together with the partners, Troms fylkeskommune, and the host institution, provides the funding for the centre.
