Mobile Mapping App Capturing Bat Data in Africa

The Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), in conjunction with Colorado State University (CSU) and the Center of Disease Control (CDC), are funding a project to measure and monitor bats in Uganda. The bats are suspected of carrying pathogens in the area, and the catch-and-release program will record detailed measurements and statistics as part of ecological and bat-distribution research.

Researchers Work on Attack-Resilient Micro Aerial Vehicles

Drones are seeing increased use in a wide array of applications, including delivery and inspection services, aerial photography, mapping and surveying, and search and rescue missions. Integrating these unmanned aircraft systems, known more technically as micro aerial vehicles (MAVs), is expected to have a significant economic impact, with a predicted investment of $91 billion over the next decade.

Antarctic Icebergs Break Free

On April 7, 2016, multiple satellites captured the birth of two large icebergs that were shed along a crack on Antarctica’s Nansen Ice Shelf during persistent strong offshore winds. The icebergs currently pose no threat to shipping, but they may pose a threat to scientific instruments moored to the seafloor to monitor climate change.

CubeSat Maps Global Air Traffic

The GomX-3 CubeSat, which was ejected from the International Space Station on Oct. 5, 2015, has been tracking aircraft in flight across Earth. Built for the European Space Agency (ESA) by GomSpace in Denmark, the CubeSat’s distinctive helical antenna has detected millions of signals from aircraft.

Mysteries of Wobbling Earth Solved

Using satellite data on how water moves around Earth, NASA scientists solved two mysteries about wobbles in the planet's rotation. Earth’s spin axis drifts slowly around the poles; the farthest away it has wobbled since observations began is 37 feet (12 meters). These wobbles don’t affect daily life, but they must be taken into account to get accurate results from GPS, Earth-observing satellites and ground-based observatories.
