Another Remote Sensing Center project! UCAR, or University Corporation for Atmospheric Research, is a National Science Foundation project tied closely with over 115 universities, dedicated to research of our Atmosphere. We are currently working on a ground penetrating radar design to fly over the mountains in western Colorado. The goal is to measure the depth of snowfall atop these remote mountains. This will provide the NOAA and several state agencies the chance to prepare for the water runoff from the snow melting in the spring. This radar will be attached to a DHC-6 Twin Otter. I have been working on several aspects of this project, including a Flight Director to provide high-accuracy flight paths, and a control module to synchronize our infrared camera with the radar system.
