The aim of this project is to define a networking solution for heterogeneous intermittent networks. The focus is on challenging environments such as the Arctic, addressing multi-disciplinary fields beyond surface communications, including space, airborne and underwater systems.
The project is now concluded but some of the conducted activities can still be found on the project’s blog.
