Vertical Takeoff and Landing Long-Range Drones for Earth and Atmospheric Observations

Join us for our next National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Innovators Seminar on March 17th at noon Eastern! What's it about? Long endurance drones, earth observations, atmospheric sensing

Creare is developing vertical takeoff and landing fixed-wing drone platforms to meet the needs of earth and atmospheric science missions. Creare’s drones range from small electric platforms with flight times less than one hour to large systems with multi-day flight endurance. Applications include measurement of turbulent air around structures, long range sensor deployment, autonomous marine boundary layer measurements, and unattended atmospheric sounding profiles to high altitudes.

About the Speaker: Ben Cameron, PhD, has served as Principal Investigator for multiple NOAA Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) projects focused on drone platform development. At Creare, he leads the Unmanned Aircraft Systems research group and oversees development of complete drone systems and airborne sensor packages for specialized scientific missions.
