In this pilot project carried out at Minamisoma, Fukushima Prefecture, meteorological weather data at altitudes of 50 m, 100 m and 140 m will be observed by flying a drone equipped with weather sensors. Accuracy will be verified by comparing the results with Doppler lidar weather observation, aiming to expand the use of drones and realize safe and efficient drone operation.
