The hottest global Eagle uses compactrio to monito

  • Detail

Global Eagle uses compactrio to monitor atmospheric ozone status

use compactrio to monitor atmospheric ozone status on the Global Hawk UAV

challenge: develop an ozone status monitoring instrument that can work on NASA's unmanned aerial vehicle. It is required that it can communicate with equipment with a ground travel of less than 500mm, carry out local flow disk of data, and be able to synchronize through network clock protocol (NTP)

solution: use compactrio to issue instructions for the driverless ozone monitoring system (UAS O3), complete the control and realize communication according to the prediction of GGII

under the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration of the United States, the earth system research laboratory in Boulder, Colorado has been committed to studying a series of processes that govern the chemical reactions in the earth's atmosphere and long-term climate change, so as to predict the behavior patterns of the atmosphere

the ozone monitoring instrument we have been using has a history of 22 years and weighs 57 pounds. We need to upgrade this instrument, reduce the weight and increase the networking function

the ozone monitoring equipment based on compactrio was successfully assembled on NASA global Eagle unmanned aerial vehicle, photographed at NASA Dryden Flight Research Center

our new UAS O3 ozone tester is an absorption type double beam ultraviolet intensity meter. One beam is used to measure the ozone status in the collected atmospheric samples, and the other beam passes through the same atmospheric samples passing through the ozone filter. The instrument weighs only 37 pounds, uses 28V DC power supply, and its sampling rate is adjustable from 0.5 to 10 Hz

compact Rio controller meets the requirements of high processing speed, low energy consumption, high mechanical strength and size of test instruments, and can complete the collection and communication of non pressurized atmospheric data on unmanned aircraft (such as NASA's global Eagle UAV) at an altitude of 64000 feet
