Using Zero-Emission Aerial Vehicles in Support of ACE

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Address a key gap in existing validation capabilities for Aerosol-Cloud-Ecosystems (ACE) by measuring the size distribution and vertical profiles in the 100m closest to the surface using a small aerial vehicle. The project will • Demonstrate feasibility of using zero emissions remote control aircraft for satellite validation • Determine if a key gap in existing validation capabilities for the ACE can be filled with this technology • Develop proper size distribution and vertical profiles of aerosols in the 100m closest to the surface for ACE mission concept More »
