Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:ATom-3 Science Flight RF09 FHAW-GVAC. This flight included 3 vertical profile maneuvers (VPM) as planned. Two VPMs were South of the Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) and one was North. At the bottom of the 3rd VPM, we did an Eddy Flux maneuver wall at 500 ft, 1000 ft, and 3000 ft followed by an MMS set of maneuvers at 7000 ft. HF#1 radio was working but HF#2 was not. CPDLC was not available in Atlantico FIR, but was mostly useful in Dakar FIR. Other than that, the aircraft arrived at Cabo Verde in good shape. Some science instruments struggled but still a successful science mission.
