Soaring and gust response in the Steppe Eagle

Abstract:

This thesis explores how onboard instrumentation can be used to study how birds interact with the atmosphere, in particular to understand their soaring strategies and gust response mechanisms. The instrumentation unit consists of integrated sensors, including a GPS, IMU (inertial measurement unit) and pressure transducer, which provide accurate, high frequency measurements of the aerodynamics and kinematics of a free flying bird. The equipment development and derivation of parameters are i...
