eMAS, CPL, RSP, AirMSPI, SSFR
Nav Data Collected: 
Yes
Total Flight Time: 
3.6 hours
Comments: 
This was the inaugural flight for eMAS. CPL, AirMSPI, RSP, and SSFR were piggyback payloads. This was also the 1st flight of CPL with the new sensor mass distribution to alleviate high pod inertias when flying with eMAS. It was also the 1st flight of the new SSFR tilt table. And it was the 1st time we've integrated eMAS, RSP, CPL, and SSFR with the new Experimenter Interface Panel (EIP) configuration. The flight went well. Initial indications, based on in-flight monitoring through NASDAT, were that eMAS performed well.
