CASA 2003-2013

CASA, the Center for Collaborative Adaptive Sensing of the Atmosphere, was established as a prestigious National Science Foundation Engineering Center in 2003 with over $40 million in federal, university, industry, and state funding. The Center brought together a multidisciplinary group of engineers, computer scientists, meteorologists, sociologists, graduate and undergraduate students, as well as industry and government partners to conduct fundamental research, develop enabling technology, and deploy prototype engineering systems based on a new paradigm: Distributed Collaborative Adaptive Sensing (DCAS) networks.

As an NSF Engineering Research Center, CASA included four academic partners: the University of Massachusetts (lead institution), the University of Oklahoma, Colorado State University, and the University of Puerto Rico. Other collaborating academic institutions were the University of Delaware, the University of Virginia, McGill University, Indiana University of Pennsylvania and University of Colorado at Colorado Springs.  Industry and government partners included: Vaisala, Raytheon, NOAA, EWR Weather Radar Systems, First RF Corporation, Paroscientific, Inc. and the National Research Institute for Earth Science and Disaster Prevention (NIED) of Japan.
