The paper presents a short review of modern technologies for sea ice thickness measuring, the experience of operation with ship-based television complex (STK), and the program for automatic sea ice thickness monitoring system STK-K. The key moment for operative satellite ice condition forecasts in active navigation areas is the ice charts validation. For qualitative ice charts validation is using the real ice thickness data. The general purpose of STK-K program (automatic sea ice thickness monitoring system) is transition from temporary local observations to real-time and large-area monitoring system. The STK-K program will provide the operative data-array of the ice thickness values for the qualitative and detailed ice charts validation.
