The fifth ISARRA conference will be co-hosted by the Scottish Association for Marine Science, near the Scottish sea port of Oban in the county of Argyll and Bute, and the MEt Office Research Facility in Cardington, England.

ISARRA 2017 will include a flying trials week based at Cardington, Bedfordshire, between 15th-19th May. The Cardington airfield was once the home to the two UK airships, the R100, and the R101 completed in 1929, and their two hangers still exist, with Shed 1 now housing the Airlander.

The trials will include all aspects of UAV activity connected with atmospheric research with an emphasis on comparison of meteorological measurements between UAVs and the extensive suite of instrumentation based at Cardington. Activities can be tailored to suit requirements of attendees.

Argyll is famous worldwide for the Hogwart Express (the Glenfinnan Viaduct), James Bond friving through Glen Etive and Oban whiskey. It also hosts SAMS, with its North Atlantic Glider Base and the Scottish Marine Robotics Facility. 

ISARRA 2017 will continue its tradition of encouraging a week of collaborative UAV-based field work followed by a science-focused conference. For the full program of talks at SAMS after the Flying trials click here>>
