Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:ATom-3 Science Flight RF04 PHKO-NFFN. This flight consisted of 7 vertical profile maneuvers (VPS) and working our way through convective systems in the Inter Tropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) and the South Pacific Convergence Zone (SPCZ). It also included an MMS maneuver at 30kft. The science payload did well, however, ATHOS lost data for the 2nd half of the flight due to a motor failure in its supercharger. Troubleshooting and repair of ATHOS is planned for our stop in Fiji. The aircraft arrived in Fiji in good shape.
