    (2014-06-11) Center for Interdisciplinary Remotely-Piloted Aircraft Studies (CIRPAS); Center for Interdisciplinary Remotely-Piloted Aircraft Studies (CIRPAS)
    The Pelican is a highly-modified Cessna 337, O2, Skymaster originally developed by the Office of Naval Research for low-altitude, longendurance atmospheric and oceanographic sampling. Through an SBIR program between Zivko Aeronautics and GA, the air vehicle was configured to operate as a true Predator UAV surrogate for the U.S. Navy. Pelican has supported several military exercises that require a UAV capability for the troops to work with, but where a real UAV wasn't practical to operate due to FAA restrictions. With Pelican, the US Military can realistically train with capabilities very close to those of the UAV's that they will work with on the battlefield.

    (2014-06-11) Center for Interdisciplinary Remotely-Piloted Aircraft Studies (CIRPAS); Center for Interdisciplinary Remotely-Piloted Aircraft Studies (CIRPAS)
    The NPS/CIRPAS Weather Radar Project objective is to develop the technology for adding a parallel weather processor capability to tactical military radars and to develop an advanced scientific instrument for investigation of atmospheric phenomena and other various types of research. The payoff to the military will be the integration of current weather data into the tactical radar picture. The payoff to the science community will be the availability of an advanced instrument for investigation of atmospheric phenomena.

    To provide CIRPAS with a base of operations for UAV flight activities for internal and customer aircraft from the military, scientific, and developmental arena. McMillan Airfield is dedicated completely to our customers and provides a base of operations void of interference from military or commercial traffic. Due to the lack of other traffic it is possible to create a flexible flight schedule that supports the Test and Evaluation community without impacting the military's Operational and Training needs.

    Twin Otter
    (2014-06-11) Center for Interdisciplinary Remotely-Piloted Aircraft Studies (CIRPAS); Center for Interdisciplinary Remotely-Piloted Aircraft Studies (CIRPAS)
    The CIRPAS Twin Otter is an instrumented twin-engine turboprop aircraft. It supports individual scientists as well as teams of scientists from various Universities and Laboratories who are interested in lower-tropospheric phenomena and air/sea interaction. Payload may be selected from a large suite of state of the art meteorological, aerosol, and cloud particle sensors, while additional equipment collaborating scientists may wish to include can be integrated as well. Twin Otter mission have been sponsored by ONR, NSF, DOE, NOAA, NASA, CARB, and NRL.

    About CIRPAS
    (2014-06-11) Center for Interdisciplinary Remotely-Piloted Aircraft Studies (CIRPAS); Center for Interdisciplinary Remotely-Piloted Aircraft Studies (CIRPAS)
    CIRPAS supports the atmospheric and ocean sciences with an instrumented Twin Otter aircraft, and with ground based mobile meteorological radar and lidar. Associated with the Twin Otter is an instrument suite consisting of meteorological, aerosol, cloud, precipitation, radiation, and chemical sensors, and a well equipped calibration laboratory.
