Unmanned Aircraft Systems Program (UAS)

UASThe Unmanned Aircraft Systems Program is one of OAR's newer components, having been established in the early 2000's after a successful collaboration with NASA and other partners that led to the testing of UAS. Alongside NOAA's ground-based sensors and satellites, UAS is an important tool with applications for sensing the atmosphere and weather, monitoring the poles, and collecting data for marine mammal conservation and oil spill responses.
