CASA Engineering Research Center

MIRSL participates in the center for Collaborative Adaptive Sensing of the Atmosphere (CASA), an NSF-funded Engineering Research Center

CASA is a multi-sector partnership among academia, industry, and government dedicated to engineering revolutionary weather-sensing networks. These innovative networks will save lives and property by detecting the region of the lower atmosphere currently below conventional radar range - mapping storms, winds, rain, temperature, humidity, and the flow of airborne hazards.
