Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:ATom-4 Science Flight RF12 PANC-KPMD. Final Flight of the 4th and final deployment of the ATom Project. Successfully completed the 4 planned vertical profile maneuvers (VPM). A flux maneuver was planned during VPM #4, but the Marine Boundary Layer was below 500 ft AGL, so just flew 500 ft AGL data line. A 1000 ft AGL 10-minute data run over the Central Valley and an MMS set of maneuvers at FL160 were also completed prior to landing in Palmdale. Science instruments had a good flight and the aircraft returned to Palmdale in great shape.
