VAWS: Use of Uncrewed Aerial Systems at the Alaska-Pacific River Forecast Center
February 24, 2021 @ 11:00 am to 12:00 pm AKST
Speaker: Jessica Cherry, Senior Hydrologist, Alaska-Pacific River Forecast Center, NWS NOAA
The topic of this presentation is the UAS program started by the APRFC in 2019. We will describe missions flown thus far and types of applications well suited for helping the National Weather Service (NWS) provide its core services. We will also discuss the advantages and challenges of ‘in-sourcing’ this technology to NWS.
