EisKlass2 — Towards automated availability of ice chart information

K&P Classified Sentinel 3 data displayed within IcySea
Contains modified Copernicus Sentinel data [2022]. Classification: König & Partner, Fernerkundung GbR (2022)

The aim of EisKlass2 is to develop new techniques for automated production of sea-ice information based on satellite earth observation. The new ice information product will be a supplement to conventional ice charts and is thus suited for navigational support of ships in polar waters. The provided ice information will help to plan routes of polar operating ships more safely and to avoid dangerous situations more effectively. Eisklass-2 is a follow-up project of the mFUND FL1 project EisKlass31 (led by König und Partner) and runs from 06/2020 to 05/2023.

The project is led by DLR (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt e.V.), and is supported by our partners at O.A.Sys - Ocean Atmosphere Systems, The Inversion Lab and König und Partner Fernerkundung GbR.

Within the project Drift+Noise is leading the work packages User Interaction and User Client.
