Upper air reports of meteorological data are limited to PIREPs (Pilot Reports), which require pilots to actually experience the weather phenomenon, and radiosondes. Unmanned aircraft systems can reduce risk and increase data points if they can seek out and observe these conditions. Automated scheduling provides a means to generate
and plan the UAS mission, taking into consideration prioritized tasks.
