SmartICE’s Community Operators provide the information gathered by the stationary and mobile sensors to partner communities across Canada’s North.
Our system provides invaluable information about sea ice conditions in near real-time. Data gathered by the SmartBUOY and SmartQAMUTIK are available to partner communities across Canada’s North through the Internet and mobile app SIKU (siku.org), as well as through social media, local radio, and printed materials. When combined with traditional knowledge, the shared information helps to reduce the travel risk of unpredictable ice conditions.
• Sign into SIKU.org and select your location

SIKU is an Indigenous knowledge social network and is brought to you by the Arctic Eider Society.
The most useful and representative ice climate data collected by our technologies for each SmartICE serviced community is selected by the local Community Management Committee and an annual summary is made available.
