Low Cost Drones for Ocean Conservation
Iacopo Carboni's insight:

The aim of this grant is to advance one of those technologies, named SoarOcean. The Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV, or drone) is a small hand-launched reusable aircraft that can fly without a human pilot or crew on-board. While this is traditionally a technology that was primarily focused on military operations by large defense contractors, there has been an explosion of growth amongst home-built and recreational UAV platforms. This new market is growing fast and producing more drones than their military counterparts, with comparable capabilities. So now there exists an opportunity to use these smaller versions to modernize the traditional forms of at-sea science observations and other monitoring tasks.
