More than 60 engineers and scientists from Oklahoma State University and partner universities are meeting this week in Stillwater to test drone technology for weather forecasting. On Tuesday morning, June 27, experts from OSU, the University of Oklahoma, the University of Kentucky, and the University of Nebraska will be available for interviews as they test-fly drone systems at the OSU Unmanned Aircraft Flight Station east of Stillwater. Flights take place until approximately noon. The CLOUD-MAP project is studying the use of unmanned aerial systems to measure weather and atmospheric data to improve storm warnings and save lives and property.
For more information and directions to the Unmanned Aircraft Flight Station, contact Jeff Joiner at 405-744-5827.
