This poster describes a new approach for measurements in wind power meteorology using small unmanned flying platforms. During a week of flying a lighter-than-air
vehicle, two small electrically powered aeroplanes and a larger helicopter at the Risø test station at Høvsøre [NEWS: due to legal reasons regarding overflight rights, we
will fly at Nøjsomheds Odde], we will compare wind speed measurements with fixed mast and LIDAR measurements, investigate optimal flight patterns for each measurement task, and measure other interesting meteorological features like the air-sea boundary in the vicinity of the wind farm. In order to prepare the measurement campaign, a workshop was held, soliciting input from various communities.
