Log Number:12G027PI:Paul Lundgren
Funding Source:Craig Dobson - NASA - SMD - ESD Geodetic Imaging Program
Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:The UAVSAR team conducted the 4th of 5 science missions over Hawaii. The Platform Precision Autopilot (PPA) “struggled” during the flight for currently unknown reasons (possibly due to large crosswinds at altitude). Due to the PPA problems, only 13 of 15 planned lines were imaged. The two missed lines were of lower priority and have been added to today’s mission.
