SUMO

About

The SUMO is an aircraft build by the Geophysical Institute of the University of Bergen, Norway. It uses industry standard sensors for temperature, air pressure, humidity and wind speed/direction as well as more specialized sensors as infrared/visible light radiation, particle concentration or ionizing radiation (full list). It has been successfully used in many measurement campaigns by various research institutions.
