Italy to use UAV to Monitor Volcano

According to Flight International, its first volcano monitoring demonstration, carrying a suite of new generation sensors now being developed by NASA and Italy’s National Institue of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV), will be over Italy’s Mount Stromboli in the March-to-May timeframe of 2009.

Among the sensors on board (probably one at a time) will be a new imaging infra-red camera, an SO2 chemical sensor, a magnometer and a miniturised Fourier Transform Spectrometer.
