High altitude flight services provider, Stratodynamics Inc. has recently acquired the licenses for a suite of sensing technology developed by NASA.

The technology detects clear air turbulence (CAT) and turbulent events such as wake vortices by ‘hearing’ wave signatures that arise from convective turbulent air.

The system has been proven as a ground-based array during the last decade, detecting and characterizing turbulence, both near and far (over 300 miles away from the source). Stratodynamics is currently conducting airborne tests with the system integrated on our own stratospheric glider and building a path toward commercialization.

Please get in touch to learn more about this disruptive technology.
