Funding Source:Ramesh Kakar - NASA - SMD - ESD Atmospheric Dynamics and Precipitation Program
Purpose of Flight:Check
Comments:DAWN Polar Winds ICF#2. Local flight at 10-11,000' MSL over land FKN-EMV-PHF, over Chesapeak Bay and over ocean Ches Light Tower. During flight Research Bus CB 1A popped and dropped research system off-line. CB reset and system reboot required, including airborne alignment of INS. INS did not fully realign. Extra 30-min spent over land while recovering systems. Instrument performance improved from ICF#1. Some static noted on Radio#1 125.0 on final approach. Some wavering of lateral guidance on KPHF and KLFI ILS frequencies. Attempted to isolate source but did not have confidence that research system was not the cause. Recommend more systematic shutdown during observed oscillation at end of next sortie.
