In a supplier competition Orbiton was chosen by the Norwegian Public Roads Administration and the Norwegian University of Science and Technology to demonstrate its technology for monitoring avalanche-prone roads. Orbiton will be conducting drone operations from Bjorli airport in Oppland County on March 1st-3rd. For this mission, Orbiton will use an advanced «fixed wing» drone with long range and flight time, in addition to many high-tech features. This drone aircraft has been used by research institutions in both the Arctic and the Antarctic, as well as by NATO forces. It will be the first time this system is operating in Norway.
