  1. Droplet-Sizing Liquid Water Content Sensor

    SBC: Anasphere, Inc            Topic: A102

    Icing is one of the most significant hazards to aircraft. A sizing supercooled liquid water content (SSLWC) sonde is being developed to meet a directly related need for in-situ measurements of both total supercooled liquid water content and droplet size distribution. This data will support the development of remote sensing instrumentation to detect icing conditions, support aircraft certificatio ...

  9. Low-Power, Lightweight Cloud Water Content Sensor

    SBC: Anasphere, Inc            Topic: E103

    The measurement of cloud water content is of great importance in understanding the formation of clouds, their structure, and their radiative properties which in turn affect the climate. While a variety of sensors exist for making these measurements, all of the existing sensors require far too much power or other energy input to be used on small platforms with limited payloads such as UAVs, balloo ...
