Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:ATom-3 Science Flight RF02 KPMD-PANC. This flight consisted of 4 vertical profile maneuvers over the Atlantic Ocean south of Alaska, then low altitude flight over the Arctic Ocean, a low-approach over Barrow, AK and then transit to Anchorage. The science payload did well. One science instrument needs to replace and functionally test an internal laser prior to the next flight. The aircraft returned in good shape.
