Exposing Spatio-Temporal structures of turbulence in the Atmospheric Boundary Layer with In-Situ measurements by a fleet of Unmanned Aerial Systems

Project description

A swarm of drones to measure turbulent phenomena in the lowest part of the atmosphere

The EU-funded ESTABLIS-UAS project aims to use a fleet of unmanned aerial vehicles to measure wind characteristics, temperature and humidity with high resolution. The analysis of data derived from the swarm of drones combined with ground observation and remote sensing data will provide unprecedented insight into the complex processes of the atmospheric boundary layer. A better understanding of the effects of turbulence would allow engineers to determine more accurately the loads to which wind turbines will be subjected during their lifecycle and predict how much power they will feed into the energy grid.
