Funding Source:Parag Vaze - NASA - SMD - ESD SWOT Project Manager
Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:Armstrong maintenance crew performed some adjustments and tests recommend by local experts as well as a minor connector repair. No conclusive fault was found, but the decision was made to attempt a science flight on Sunday and observe the effects of changes. Aircraft: The autopilot system functioned normally for the first hour and then disconnected. Switching from flight director 1 to 2 allowed the continuation without further issues. The yaw damper system remained functional throughout the flight. Data collection: 14 of 14 planned lines were collected (Tanana1 + Yukon Flats 1). Flight time: approximately 5 hours. AirSWOT: Both the camera and radar function normally. Data collection on all required channels was verified with the real-time display. Camera data is being transferred and radar data drives have been moved into our on-site server. Both camera and radar data QA will be performed tomorrow. Plan for tomorrow: Yukon Flats Phenomenology (~4 hours). 8am takeoff: a compromise between minimum solar angle for the camera and onset of cumulus clouds due to solar heating.
