Solar Irradiance sensors for UAV applications

New and innovative techniques are required to gain more knowledge of the ever-changing atmospheric conditions and the effect this has on the environment. Current methods of measuring solar irradiation in the vertical profile of the atmosphere still have limitations and issues concerning measurement uncertainty.

UAV is one of the new methods commonly used in observational studies due to their maneuverability, size, and versatility. The purpose of this study is to construct the Unmanned Aerial System (UAS), based on a quadcopter which includes sensors to measure radiation, temperature, humidity, and pressure to gain a better insight to the vertical structure of the atmosphere and to improve the predictability of weather and climate models further.

Dr. Sheng-Hsiang Wang (Associate Professor of the Department of Atmospheric Sciences, National Central University) an his colleagues in Taiwan have installed the MS-80U and ML-01 on their UAV to measure upward and downward radiation.
