ERC for Collaborative Adaptive Sensing of the Atmosphere

The Engineering Research Center for Collaborative Adaptive Sensing of the Atmosphere (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 that is currently below conventional radar range—mapping storms, winds, rain, temperature, humidity, and the flow of airborne hazards. CASA brings together a multidisciplinary group of engineers, computer scientists, meteorologists, sociologists, and graduate and undergraduate students, along with industry and government partners, to conduct fundamental research, develop enabling technologies, and deploy prototype engineering systems based on a new paradigm: Distributed Collaborative Adaptive Sensing (DCAS) networks.
