Mission Summary: 

Test Flight 4
Salt Lake and Broomfield Ramp Calibration Flight, 9/17/15

Final, pre-mission cal flight for the LVIS and DMS instruments prior to departure to Chile.
Goals were to test GPS set up and collect calibration data for IMUs, LVIS and DMS instruments.
All systems operated well. Targets in Salt Lake area and Broomfield were overflown.

Power to everything in cabin was lost during power switch off to ground power. No post-mission applanix  data were collected. There is also the potential for corruption of the last IMU file of each system.
