Ourexpertise

ARCTUS designs and develops space-based remote sensing technology tools for applications in aquatic environments, from freshwater to open ocean. The ARCTUS team also includes expertise in modeling, as well as in the analysis, display and management of geospatial data.

Our scientists specialize in the theoretical underpinnings of radiative transfer in the atmosphere and hydrosphere, and have mastered numerous Earth Observation Technologies (EOT) and geomatics. This includes, for example, advanced processing of multispectral satellite imagery (including atmospheric correction for small water target), automation of processing chains and production of value-added satellite products in near-real time. They rapidly synthesize the components of a complex scientific problem and propose solutions tailored to the challenges and needs of users.

R&D AND DEMONSTRATION

Ideation, creation and technological demonstration by highly qualified scientific personnel in oceanography, geography, geomatics and remote sensing. The ARCTUS team uses up-to-date scientific research to develop state-of-the-art products and services.

Scientific analysis and development of algorithms for improved, automated processing of satellite data and its application to the monitoring of aquatic environments.


ENVIRONNEMENT MONITORING

Monitoring of environmental parameters (turbidity, chlorophyll-a, ship, sea ice, coastal ecosystems, bathymetry) for mapping and detecting changes in aquatic ecosystems and coastal habitats. Some EO products can be generated in near-real time.

COASTAL MONITORING PLATFORM


QUALITY CONTROL AND VALIDATION

Assessment and validation of the quality and accuracy of operational satellite products (e.g. radiometry) and high-value-added derived products (e.g. bathymetry).


CONSULTING

Writing technical reports and scientific publications to support decision-making using Earth observation technologies for monitoring coastal environments.
