Dr. Simona Seastrand will speak at the 98th Annual AMS Conference in Austin, TX (7 –11 January, 2018). Her presentation will highlight results from PEMDAS’ recent Air-Land-Sea campaign, an experimental study designed to investigate the impact of assimilating in-situ measures of pressure, temperature, and humidity from the PEMDAS designed Airborne Sensing and Prediction System (ASAPS) into a regional weather model.
PEMDAS Senior Research Scientist and expert on Remote Sensing technologies, Dr. Brian Griffith presented the results of our ASAPS (Atmospheric Sensing and Prediction System) technology obtained during a joint PEMDAS and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) field test conducted from Barrow, Alaska. Operating a ScanEagle drone, United States Navy pilots successfully utilized PEMDAS’ ASAPS sensor to collect meteorological data
PEMDAS supported a joint NOAA and Navy UAV operation in the Arctic in 2015 to track whales by providing real-time weather forecasting and icing alerts to the government team. Mary Lockhart and PEMDAS Chief Technology Officer John Shepley later presented “Improving Environmental Situational Awareness for UAV Operations” at the Alaska Unmanned Air System Interest Group Annual meeting based upon the
