Successful flight above the Kuparuk River near the Toolik Field Station in the Arctic Alaska
Wednesday, July 31, 2013
AggieAir flew three great flights today over a 5 mile section of the Kuparuk river. Two of the flights captured thermal imagery at different times of the day. The third flight captured visual and near-infrared (NIR) images.
The tundra provided a nice soft landing spot for the aircraft.
The ground station setup was minimal and included a tent in case it started raining (it did a few times).

USU AggieAir Received COA for Flight Above Arctic Circle near Toolik Alaska
Monday, June 24, 2013
Utah State University recieved a Certificate of Authorization (COA) from the FAA to fly AggieAir near a remote research field station, called Toolik, above the artic circle. The aerial images taken from AggieAir will support a new National Science Foundation collaborative grant (ARC 1204220/1204216) between Utah State University (USU) and University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF). The data provided by these flights will result in fundamental information necessary to determine the frequency, distribution, and influences of lateral inflows on river water temperatures in the Kuparuk River basin.
