Permafrost represents one fourth of the arctic area. This frozen land is not supposed to melt. But since the year 2000, we observe a phenomena called thawing permafrost. This issue is considered as a huge climatic bomb for a lot of reasons. For exemple, in 2020, 20 000 tons of diesel leaked in natural lakes from a thermal power plant which collapsed due to thawing permafrost. And estimations show that this phenomena will cos 100 billion dollars up to 2050.
During the hackathon, we worked on a way to prevent these types of collapsed due to thawing permafrost.

For our service, we will rely on three satellites constellations :
We will process these Data and use them to create an A.I. that will be able first to monitor the thawing permafrost and then to predict it.
❄️ Connecting the Arctic
We are solving the challenge "Life on land" by warning Arctic populations against possible accidents caused by thawing permafrost.
We are all 5 students at ISAE Supaero in MGPIE (Management de Projets Innovants et Entrepreneuriat).
