The focus of this year´s Arctic Drone Event was a question of grave importance, namely how to improve the nuclear preparedness and environmental monitoring in case of an incident in this vulnerable region. Representatives of governmental agencies from Norway, Russia and the USA, as well as the research community got together for a week to discuss the use of autonomous systems in case of a nuclear incident. Hyperlocal weather data is of crucial importance in case of a nuclear emergency. Meteomatics CEO Martin Fengler was invited to present the Meteodrone at the conference in Tromsø and during an exclusive seminar during a four-day ship voyage to the island of Spitsbergen.
