    Equipments Details

    Description

    Our NERC Recognised Airborne GeoSciences Facility operates a fleet of manned and unmanned aircraft equipped with state of the art sensors to support research and teaching across the School and beyond.

    Airborne research and survey techniques are enjoying major growth in activity and interest.

    Over recent years unmanned aircraft have opened up the field to a vastly wider audience, creating entirely new types of data product and simultaneously driving the cost, size and weight of sensors and systems down. This in turn is generating exciting new opportunities for high-quality data acquisition from small, low cost manned aircraft.

    We are able to support our researchers and students with direct flight operations, equipment loan, training and specialist platform development and sensor integration.

    This facility is recognised by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), for its unique service and excellence.
