AirMOSS completes flight over Costa Rica

Thursday, April 3, 2014

Two engineering flights were completed the week of March 17 that fine-tuned the High Power amplifier controller firmware used to eliminate short non-transmit events during a data take.  The P-band radar is now on deployment in Cost Rica after a successful first flight on March 25 over La Selva, a tropical forest biome.  Two additional observations will be made over the next seven days before returning to Houston, Texas.  A Science Open House is scheduled for March 28 at the Liberia Airport in Costa Rica.
