ESA Incubed IcySea — A progressive web app to support navigation in Polar Regions from space

IcySea is a map-based application designed to display and deliver ice relevant information for operational purposes in the polar regions. It is addressed to national and local authorities, as well as to commercial and non-commercial users (for example: tourism, fisheries, research, offshore, and surveying vessels).

By the end of the activity the IcySea app will be a digital one-stop shop to deliver 24/7 global ice information in near-real-time via low bandwidth connections to users in polar regions.

The goal is to have a competitive IcySea running on a critical number of ice-going ships by the end of 2023. A subscription-based SaaS business model will ensure financing of the continuous development cycle behind IcySea which will turn it into a sustainable and financially independent service.
