Welcome to the Clarkson University UAV "Golden Eagle" Project campaign log. The UAV aircraft carries a sonic anemometer, provided by Applied Technologies, Inc., that acquires wind vectors and accelerations. The project is a portion of a greater effort in collecting weather condition and air quality data near wind farms in Indiana funded by the Department of Energy. In doing so, the onshore collaborative is a preliminary step towards gathering data for proposed offshore wind turbine farms on and around Lake Erie. Several academic institutions and industries are partnered in the research, including Clarkson University, Indiana University, Case Western Reserve University, Arizona State University, EDP Renewables, and SgurrEnergy. Feel free to email the project for more information concerning the campaign, team members, or the "Golden Eagle" UAV aircraft.

Television News Segment Featuring the Golden Eagle
Hello everyone! It has been quite some time since we last had an update after the conclusion of our campaign in Indiana. Fortunately, we have more news for you, or at least WWNY does. This past week the news station visited the Clarkson University campus to prepare a segment on the successes of the Golden Eagle and its applications in wind turbine research. In the segment are our own Jordan Janas, Dan Valyou, and Pier Marzocca.
