Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:Instruments: AOP, PALMS, LARGE, HDSP2, DASH SP, ISAF, HRAMS, TDLIF, GTCIMS, CITCIMS, PTRMS (Probe removed), DIAL, NOyO3 (Probe removed), DACOM, DLH, COLAS, SAGA, AVOCET, ATHOS, DFGAS, MMS, SPEC (CPI, 2DS, HVPS, FDCP – sensor heads removed), WAS, SSFR, BBR, RPI, CAFS This was the initial instrument functional check flight. Altitudes from 500 ft (low approach) to 41,000 ft were flown and a broad airspeed envelope was explored. All instruments operated collecting data. Areas flown included the Los Angeles basin, ocean off Los Angeles coast, Central Valley to north of Sacramento. A spiral from 41,000 ft to 16,000 ft NW of JPL and then a level flight segment at 8,500 ft over JPL was accomplished to collect data in concert with an OCO-2 instrument in development at JPL. Instruments assessed to operate generally well with several minor anomalies to be addressed.
