Our lab and WindShape have been invited to share their thoughts about assessing drone (UAS/UAM) performance in adverse weather conditions at AUVSI/Xponential, the annual international conference on Unmanned Vehicle Systems (Chicago, April 29 – May 4 2019).

The presentation is one among a few other from key actors in the field, including ZipLine (who flies humanitarian drones in Africa), the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), Leosphere, etc.

The forum has been organized by Matthias Steiner from NCAR, who is reponsible for Aviation Meteorology.




Nexus from Bell (here in Chicago), just like all other Urban Aerial Mobility vehicles, will need to tackle weather issues, in particular during flight transition phases such as take-off and landing.
