As part of a team lead by Anasphere, Inc www.anasphere.com, Vanilla Aircraft was selected by NASA to develop a miniature guided dropsonde for atmospheric sampling. The GlideSonde will provide NASA a reliable and cost-effective means to deploy dropsondes into dangerous environments where few aircraft are able to safely venture. Phase I work will include designing and prototyping the aerodynamic form, integrating essential guidance electronics, and conducting extensive glide tests. Phase II work will include the integration of complete sensor, guidance, and communications payloads, refinement of the aerodynamic form, and extensive live flight tests from medium altitude.
