Autonomous Snow and Ice Measurement

Snow Ice Mass Balance Apparatus (SIMBA)

“SIMBA is an excellent tool to monitor snow conditions in real time in remote or hazardous locations from the comfort of your office” - Dr Blair Fyffe - Snow Scientist

SIMBA provides reliable, long-term data gathering and monitoring solutions which help understand changes in sea ice, river ice and snow in extreme and inaccessible locations. 

Examples of uses: 

> SEA ICE - Climate and environmental research 

> RIVER ICE - Flood forecasting 

> SNOW - Avalanche prediction aid


> Climate research 

> Protecting communities through flood and avalanche detection

> Safeguarding infrastructure 

Quality Data
Unique sensing through active heat cycles
> Proven 10 years in polar regions to deliver sea ice data.
> Custom web interface
> Temperature readings: Raw, high res, active sensing, ambient air.
> Snow and ice accumulation/melt rates
> Detects the interface between water, snow, ice and air

> Remote user configuration of sampling settings via email or text
> Low power design with long battery life and low maintenance
> Barometric pressure, GPS positioning
> Data sent via GSM or Iridium
> Fixed station, semi or fully mobile system
