Log Number:12F001 - Completed as of this flight.PI:Michael Studinger
Funding Source:Bruce Tagg - NASA - SMD - ESD Airborne Science Program
Purpose of Flight:Check
Comments:Post deployment instrument check flight for calibration of LVIS instrument. Mission flown out of Langley AFB, out AR-9 for over water pitch/roll and instrument warm up at FL200. Clouds above precluded desired altitude of FL280. Pitch/roll maneuvers over Chesapeake Bay. Orthoganal cloverleaf ramp passes over Wallops Flight Facility at 13,500' and 10,500', again higher altitude precluded by clouds above. Transitioned RTB with more pitch/roll over Chesapeake Bay. Ramp passes at Langley were not performed due to cloud ceilings below 10,000' preventing active lasing over KLFI. Mission terminated with a stationary ground calibration. This mission completes the LVIS Operation Ice Bridge campaign on Langley's HU-25C Falcon 20 aircraft.
