An Agile Aerial Sensor System Tailored for In-Situ Cloud Measurements, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Barron Associates is proposing a novel atmospheric sensor platform that fills a gap in current sensing capabilities by providing a low-cost, portable technology that can be used for guided remote sensing applications such as cloud characterization, volcanic plume measurements, and polar atmospheric research. The proposed sensor platform consists of compact, tube-deployed UAVs equipped with atmospheric sensors and a custom launch system. Initial development of the sensor-UAV was performed during a NASA Phase I Contract in 2014. Barron Associates is proposing a development schedule that builds upon the prior Phase I technology to mature the sensor-UAV and launch system in preparation for Phase II cloud measurement tests.
