Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:The fifth ATTREX science flight was just over 24 hours. The takeoff was delayed almost 3 hours due to troubleshooting of an Iridium modem issue with the MPCS and heavy aircraft traffic at EAFB. The aircraft operated nominally during the mission, except for the aircraft Ku payload system, which stopped transmitting about 3 hours into the flight. The loss of Ku did not negatively impact the mission.
