ArcticShark Flies its First InstrumentsExternal link

On September 21 and 22, from an airstrip at the Eastern Oregon Regional Airport, the ArcticShark flew its first instruments, hefting aloft on its 22-foot wings a modest payload of 18 pounds. Still, it was a landmark moment, a proof-of-concept, for the ARM Climate Research Facility’s latest and biggest unmanned aerial system (UAS). Read More »
