A satellite network is the only cost efficient technology to collect data from, and control, remote sensors and other IoT devices, in order to protect and learn about resources all over the arctic land and ocean areas. For example, such a network may provide low latency low data rate for underwater gliders that can cover large distances efficiently and occasionally surfaces to dump data and receive commands, or medium data rate communication for surface buoys that provide situational awareness both above and below the water. The main objective of the ALISA project is to design, develop and demonstrate frequency agnostic air interface for low power IoT messaging on the C/X, Ku, and Ka-bands for use on LEO, (MEO), HEO and (GEO) satellites. The project is a collaboration between Widenorth, Space Norway (Norsk Romsenter), NTNU, and Simula UiB. The role of Simula UiB is to design the error correcting codes for the air interface, and the security part of the communication system.
