Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:Today we collected all 10 Yukon Flats lines but after the first Tanana line the yaw damper failed. The yaw damper is required equipment above 17000 ft. The aircraft is grounded pending resolution of this issue. The Armstrong team is seeking additional resources both back in California and here in Fairbanks to help resolve this problem ASAP. I will share more info on this as I have it. Additionally, during data QA today, we discovered that one of the radar receiver channels was not being recorded due to a configuration error. The fix has been implemented and verified by collection and review of data during a ground test. As a result of this issue, the XTI product on the inner swath will not be available for the flights on 6/2 and 6/4. Inner swath sigma-0 and ATI as well as all wide-swath measurements are unaffected. The camera operated normally, but most of the day was cloudy so we do not expect good photography today. There we will be no flight tomorrow. I will keep you up to date with news (hopefully better) as information becomes available
