Flight Number: 
17-9023
Payload Configuration: 
AVIRIS-NG, CPL, CRS, EXRAD, FEGS, GCAS, LIP, S-HIS
Nav Data Collected: 
Yes
Total Flight Time: 
3.8 hours
Comments: 
It was agreed by the respective Instrument PIs, that because this was an additional engineering/calibration flight, the flight hours would be charged to the instrument flight requests that were being evaluated instead of the GOES-R flight request.

Log Number:172009PI:Francis Padula
Funding Source:Steven Goodman - NOAA - GOES-R Program Senior Scientist
Purpose of Flight:Check
Comments:The purpose of this flight was to conduct an engineering/calibration of 3 instruments: cold soak the CPL instrument for 2.5 hours; fly calibration lines for the FEGS instrument; and fly calibration lines over Ivanpah for the AVIRIS-C instrument.

Funding Source:Charles Trepte - NASA - SMD - ESD CALIPSO Project Scientist
Purpose of Flight:Check
Comments:Conduct a cold soak of the CPL instrument before the GOES-R deployment to Warner Robbins, GA. During the post flight de-brief meeting, the CPL scientist said that the CPL data looked good based on real-time data.

Log Number:172022 - Completed as of this flight.PI:Richard Blakeslee
Funding Source:Steven Goodman - NOAA - GOES-R Program Senior Scientist
Purpose of Flight:Check
Comments:Fly calibration lines for the FEGS instrument before the GOES-R deployment to Warner Robbins, GA. The lines consisted of 10 minute runs at 50k, 40k, 30k, 20k, and 10k feet. The 40k foot line was cut short at 7 minutes because of clouds.

Funding Source:Diane Wickland - NASA - SMD - ESD Terrestrial Ecology
Purpose of Flight:Check
Comments:Conducted flight lines over the Ivanpah calibration ground site. During the first 3 passes of the Ivanpah calibration site, the cloud coverage was 50%. The last 2 passes, 0% cloud coverage (sky clear).
