Upcoming Events


The International Society for Atmospheric Research using Remotely-piloted Aircraft (ISARRA) will be holding its 4th conference from 23 - 25 May 2016, in Toulouse, France.

Unmanned aerial systems (UAS) and remotely piloted aerial systems (RPAS) have become viable tools to study the Earth's atmosphere.  Over the past decade, their use has become increasingly common and there is an ever-growing level of interest to use these platforms to address long-standing issues in atmospheric science. The 4th ISARRA conference seeks to unite the atmospheric science community, industry representatives and government officials to promote the exchange of ideas, emerging technologies, sampling strategies, and experiences related to deploying UAS in the field.

ISARRA 2016 is comprised of two components.  In the week preceding the conference (17 to 20 May), there will be four days of flight activities at the Center for Atmospheric Research (Lannemezan, France) for inter-comparisons and validation of sampling techniques with UAS.  More information on the field study will be made available in January 2016.  The ISARRA conference will take place between 23 to 25 May at the International Conference Center at Météo France in Toulouse and will focus on the exchange of knowledge through oral and poster presentations.  The ISARRA meeting is designed to facilitate interactions between experienced research teams, the private sector, and individuals interested using UAS for atmospheric research.

The programmatic themes for the meeting will focus on:

1) Aircraft and control systems

2) Instrumentation and payload integration

3) Science applications

4) Regulatory issues
