CReSIS in Aerospace
CReSIS researchers and scientists develop new sensors and aircraft. Through these platforms, we develop unique data sets for the broader scientific community. CReSIS engineers have created two unmanned aircraft systems (UASs) for ambitious research in remote areas, creating immersive research experiences for undergraduate students in aerospace engineering and unique opportunities for scientists and researchers across the globe.
