|Flt Req #:||02008/12008 (Carol Bruegge) & 02059/12035 (Kurt Thome)|
|Objective:||Lunar Lake & Railroad Valley, NV (MISR vicarious calibration)|
|Other sensors:||AVIRIS, MAS, RC-10 film camera, Globalstar datamodem|
|Cam.run file:||2.0_2.0_km_cam.run created: 02/04/00 15:22:19|
Four, as noted (UTC times are approximate). All were on a heading of 013/193 ° true. No offset to the line was flown.
|Ramp runs:||none performed|
|Pilot notes:||All lines were cloud-free. On the third run, the N2 (run monitor) light went out earlier than expected.|
No anomalies have been noted so far.
All runs in the AirMISR log file, including the third, appear to be the correct duration (12 minutes).
The current probe was installed and fed to the navigation recorder, but the data has not been downloaded yet.
The mobile pilot accidently turned AirMISR on before engine start, while the aircraft was out on the ramp (approximately 17:09 UTC). The pilot immediately turned nose power back off, and the UPS daemon shut down the instrument 30 seconds later as designed.
During this ramp operation, the mobile pilot noticed noise on the ADF (a navigation system) while AirMISR started up. Post-flight trouble-shooting in the hangar confirmed that AirMISR is producing audible interference on this system. No information is available yet about in-flight interference.
