Abstract

First Climate Measurements Made from Unman- threat to human pilots. Their use in climate research ned Aerospace Vehicie gives the global change community the capability to position instruments on a platform whose location is A multilaboratory team experienced success with not constrained by earthborne siting considerations its first flight test of an unmanned aerospace vehicle nor by the variability of orbital satellites and their (UAV), launched with th e intention to collect measure- resolution limitations. ment s of climate change-related data from such a platform. Th e platform used was a Gnat 750, leased by the Th e goal of the flight on 13 November 1993 was U.S. Department of Energy from General Atomics. primarily to flight test the instrumentation and plat- Th e multilaboratory team included Brookhaven Na- form, planne d so tha t if weathe r condition s an d system tional Laboratory, Sandia National Laboratory, Los performanc e criteria were met, significant scientific Alamo s National Laboratory, and Pacific Northwest dat a could be obtained.
