University of North Dakota to study UAVs in Tropical Storms

The Atmospheric Sciences department of the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks has received a $75,000 grant to study how unmanned aerial vehicles do in tropical systems (hurricanes, typhoons, etc…).  They will be doing computer modeling for the study, I would expect future studies involve UAVs the size of the GlobalHawk which the US Government and military uses to do actual flights in the future.
