Distributed Autonomous System Laboratory

“Use of unmanned aircraft will eventually be a common tool in both meteorology and atmospheric physics, but there is a lot of research that needs to be accomplished first in technical, operational and regulatory areas for that to happen,” said Jamey Jacob, the project’s principal investigator and the Ray and Linda Booker Professor of Aerospace Engineering in OSU’s College of Engineering, Architecture and Technology (CEAT).


The multi-disciplinary team of investigators at OSU includes Girish Chowdhary and Brian Elbing from the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, and Chris Crick, computer science, and Amy Frazier, geography, as well as other OSU researchers.
