Paper Abstract

ENSCO, Inc has identified a need for airborne in-situ measurements of meteorological parameters such as temperature, humidity, pressure, wind velocity, as well as biological and chemical agents. In this paper, we describe one approach for the development of such a probe using advances in materials, microelectromechanical systems, and nanotechnology. We present the technology roadmap for creating an Observational Roving Body (ORB) and discuss power generation / storage, communications, networking, sensing, and aerodynamic design associated with development of airborne probes for in-situ measurements.
