Massachusetts-based Physical Sciences Inc. partners with UND to test weather-measuring UAS payload
Hudson Robotics Inc. announced today a collaboration with Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) to bring drone technology to life science laboratories for sample handling. Specifically, microplates containing samples or reagents will be delivered directly to instruments and automated workcells to perform various drug discovery, genomics or quality control related assays.
The hygrometer, built to measure ambient water vapor density, air pressure and temperature from an unmanned aircraft system (UAS), was successfully tested during a sustained six-hour flight south of Mayville, N.D.
Developed by PSI and its project team members, the instrument is designed for research at the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement Climate Research Facility in northern Alaska, to better understand cloud microphysics.
