Wind and turbulence sensing for UAV/UAS applications

Langley Research Center (LARC) - Internship
NASA Langley has been instrumental in developing various types of advanced atmospheric remote sensors. At Electromagnetics and Sensors Branch, various ground based sensors are being assembled for wind and turbulence sensing experiments. The overall goal is to advance the current ground based sensor technology for UAV/UAS applications. Accordingly, the student will collect and analyze wind and turbulence data from ground based instruments. Furthermore, he will also develop appropriate software tools and techniques for transmitting data to UAV/UASs for autonomous navigation and various on-demand requirements.
