Comments:This was the final CMIS TRL development science flight conducted 50% at night. All objectives met with overflight of various cloud formations, track repeats over two areas of interest. Over land, over water. A satellite underpass of ALADIN was met with good timing. Foreflight track data collected and provided. This completes the CMIS project. (Note: the 19.1 hours reflects the CFP flight that was not part of the SOFRS request but performed by RSD for safety of flight verification of the recessed portal configuration)
