Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:ATom-3 Science Flight RF13 PANC-KPMD. This is the final flight of the ATom-3 campaign. Rough start prior to takeoff as the generators would not parallel so we chose to rebalance some of the converter loads and fly unparalleled. No problems during the flight with power to the science instruments. Completed 5.2 vertical profile maneuvers and an eddy flux maneuver at 500', 2000', and 4200' over the ocean. CAFS zenith senor was INOP the whole flight. Other than that, the science instruments did well and the aircraft returned in good shape. That concludes ATom-3.
