Comments:ATom-3 Science Flight RF01 Equator Flight KPMD-KPMD. This flight consisted of a high altitude cruise to near the equator. The first of 4 vertical profile maneuvers was started southbound and included 10 minutes of level flight 500 ft AGL over the ocean. Three additional VPMs to 500 ft AGL for 5 minutes each were flown heading North. Some maneuvering around high clouds was required in the Inter Tropical Convergence Zone. The science payload did well. EMI did not appear on VHF#2. The aircraft returned in good shape.
