Michigan Aerospace developing clear air turbulence sensor

  • 20-Jan-2010 09:30 EST

Michigan Aerospace Corp. (MAC) received a NASA Phase 1 Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contract to develop a Molecular Air Data Clear Air Turbulence (MADCAT) sensor. This project is a result of MAC’s experience developing and deploying atmospheric LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) systems. The goal of this effort is to develop compact instrumentation capable of identifying areas of clear air turbulence along an aircraft’s flight path so that mitigating measures can be taken. In addition, the instrumentation will be capable of providing a complete air data solution.
