AirMISR on board the ER-2 aircraft
The NASA ER-2 aircraft is shown with the AirMISR instrument installed in the nose, undergoing testing. The black object at the bottom surface of the nose is the viewing window for AirMISR. The tall cart on wheels holds equipment used to display images and other AirMISR data after the aircraft lands. It is not flown with the instrument.
