CSIRO conducts research which requires airborne platforms. Research activities include atmospheric measurements for cloud formation, studies into clouding seeding, aerosol and pollution measurements and monitoring. Remote sensing tasks have included bush fire monitoring, mapping forests, mapping algae booms and other aquatic activities and coral reef using optical scanners.

CSIRO uses the most appropriate platform to achieve its objectives ranging from powered gliders, light twins to large aircraft including C130 Hercules and the DC8. Many of these aircraft come from overseas to enable data to be collected.

CSIRO has built an extensive instrument and knowledge base through the use of airborne platforms. We have designed and built world accepted airborne equipment.
