ASTRA (Atmospheric Science Through Robotic Aircraft)

This research programme aims to provide scientists with very low cost platforms for science missions such as pollution monitoring and weather prediction.

The research aims to develop a modular, highly scalable airframe that is balloon launched and which can be given either a pre-programmed flight path or can communicate with a flight path optimiser for real-time course correction.
