Anders and Andreas celebrate the VINNOVA award

Anders and Andreas celebrate the VINNOVA grant

Sparv Embedded is proud to announce we have been awarded a 400.000 SEK development grant from Sweden’s innovation agency VINNOVA. Our project was among the few selected from an unusually large amount of applications. Over 700 applications were submitted from small and medium-size Swedish companies.

Our project regards a novel way of using a UAV for weather measurements, where we also applied for a patent. If successful, this will form a new part of the expanding Windsond radiosonde system, to give users more flexibility when performing meteorological soundings of the lower atmosphere.
