Operating in oceans and seas across the world are various types of vehicles, buoys and sensors. Moreover, their availability has increased in high-latitude regions, due to their socio-economic impact, creating several communication challenges. This presentation introduces the SINet project, which aims at developing an integrated communication system for intermittent links in the Arctic. Heterogeneity and networking

robustness are two key aspects of this project, which proposes a Software-defined Intermittent Networking solution. The presented work is funded by an H2020 Marie-Curie Action, which promotes mobility of researchers worldwide.
