Radio tracker making it’s own flight forecast

Today the highly experienced HAB operator Dave Akerman is taking flight forecasting to a new level when he plans to fly a radio tracker which will be making, and down linking, it’s own flight track projections. Operators are very familiar with using the HABITAT platform to display radio tracker locations and have a visualisation of a forecast for it’s flight path. This is done on an automatic basis by the habitat we based platform. Today, Dave will be operating a LORA radio tracker that will make it’s own forecast flight path based on it’s location and previous flight path. More information about the payload is available at https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/ukhas/CoVZ_kQEZt4

and the flight can be followed at https://tracker.habhub.org/  call sign PILORA. He may be tweeting about it at https://twitter.com/daveake?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor
