Funding Source:Bruce Tagg - NASA - SMD - ESD Airborne Science Program
Purpose of Flight:Check
Comments:This was the first flight with the Seagrass Aquascan payload installed. Data was collected over the canal to the south of the airfield. The 900 MHz payload communication system caused a significant reduction in the quality of the GCS control link, but it is not required for data collection. The PSTAR radar system was not functioning properly, but it did take the aircraft position provided by the GCS and display the aircraft location correctly. There were no aircraft squawks and the aircraft and its systems performed well.
