The Airborne Geosciences Facility was established to support environmental & geoscientific research and teaching through the development, integration and operation of advanced airborne sensing technologies deployed on both manned and unmanned aircraft. We operate our own ECO-Dimona light aircraft alongside a fleet of small unmanned aircraft systems, and a suite of remote sensing and atmospheric instruments. Our stated goal is to provide the core capability to promote and develop an internationally recognised centre of excellence around airborne research and sensing using both manned and unmanned aircraft within the UK research community. The combination of platforms and senors that we operate, and the experience that we have developed over the last 14 years of operation, provide us with an internationally unique set of capabilities with extremely diverse applications, both directly supporting researchers in the field, and in the development and testing of innovative new technologies for airborne platforms.
