EDGE9 (5-Oct-2014) - Flight Summary
The second flight of our new sensor for the BEACON Project (the EFM payload), another flight for our NIR HD camera, and a 4th-grade science fair project were all on this flight. The importance of wearing blaze orange safety gear in the field was reinforced: turns out this was the first day of antelope season in Colorado, and we definitely landed in an active hunting ground. Anything to recover the payloads, right? Preferably not live fire exercises...
