An engineering services and products company, Michigan Aerospace Corp. of Ann Arbor has received a one-year, $2.1 million contract from the University of New Hampshire in Durham as part of a larger grant from the Washington-based National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The follow-on contract will enable the company to demonstrate its lidar atmospheric wind measurement technology on a high-altitude balloon platform, providing wind measurement from 100,000 ft to the ground. Known as BalloonWinds, the system is aimed at improving the accuracy of long-term weather forecasts.
