UAV and ISARRA
Sparv Embedded is working on extending the Windsond system to also support using a UAV as vehicle for measurements at altitude. This will allow meteorological soundings without utilizing balloons or helium, making the equipment even more portable and making soundings even less expensive than with the Windsond radiosonde. We believe this holds great potential for both existing users of radiosonde technology as well as new markets and we have filed for a patent for our method.
As a step in this development, we will participate in a conference by “International Society for Atmospheric Research using Remotely piloted Aircraft”, ISARRA. The conference will take place in Norman, Oklahoma, USA from May 20 to 22. Oklahoma has a long and rich tradition in both weather research and aviation.
At the conference trade show, we will also showcase the Windsond miniature radiosonde. Maybe see you there?
