Purpose of Flight:Check
Comments:ATom-3 science checkflight #1. This flight included low-level flying (500 ft AGL) above the ocean and the eddy flux maneuver (5 mins at 500 ft, 1000 ft, and 1500 ft above the ocean). It also included low-level flying (1000 ft AGL) above Central valley. The flight consisted of two vertical profile maneuvers (VPM) from high-to-low-to-high to simulate typical ATom flight profiles. An MMS maneuver was also conducted at 1500 ft. The science payload did well. EMI did appear again on VHF#2. The aircraft returned in good shape.
