  • East Tennessee scientists use a drone called the "Coyote" to study hurricanes


    Drones could hold the key to learning more about storms like Hurricane Laura.

    "It is kind of exciting because there's an area in a hurricane that if you go there, you don't live to tell about it. It's underneath the eyewall, low altitude over the ocean. These aircraft are designed to go there," said Ron Dobosy, a retiree of ORAU and an atmospheric scientist. 

    Dobosy and SUAS Pilot Ed Dumas were part of a team that calibrated and improved instruments for a drone called the "Coyote."
