POTSDAM — A group of Clarkson University students and faculty has built and tested an unmanned aerial vehicle that can collect data on wind direction and speed, which may be used to scout sites for offshore wind turbines.

The 40-pound “Golden Eagle” was tested along Lake Erie in Sandusky, Ohio, this summer.

The project is part of the university’s larger plan to research offshore wind turbine farms on Lake Erie.
