UAVOS and Stratodynamics have successfully performed a series of stratospheric flights with the balloon launched HiDRON, an autonomous aircraft, at Spaceport America, New Mexico.

The mission objectives were to advance new systems for forward sensing turbulence detection onboard aircraft at near-space and commercial flight altitudes. The early June campaign was supported by the NASA Flight Opportunities Program to advance turbulence detection sensors developed by the University of Kentucky (UKY) and NASA’s Langley Research Center. The results will cross validate data from multiple probes with flight data from the HiDRON.
