AirMOSS completes flights over Oklahoma and Mexico

Friday, June 21, 2013

AirMOSS has completed two (2) MOISST, Oklahoma flights and two (2) Chamela, Mexico flights. Last week, ground Built-In Test revealed an issue with the P-band RF electronics which was traced to a faulty Low Power Switch Network; the box had endured water damage, was replaced with a flight spare, and flights were resumed. The team is investigating the source of the water leak. In the meantime, the flight spare unit was sealed properly to prevent any water from entering the box. When AirMOSS returns to Ontario, the team plans to install humidity sensors to monitor the humidity of the nosecone to determine when water might have entered the pod.
