AirMOSS Resumes Science Campaign

Thursday, October 31, 2013

The Science campaign resumed on October 23 with two science flights over Tonzi Ranch after much coordination with Beale Air Force Base and NASA frequency coordinators at Goldstone Facility. Radar data has now been successfully acquired over all 9 biomes. Preliminary assessment of the radar imagery looks very good, with little radio frequency interference. Two calibration flights were also conducted over the Rosamond corner reflector array in between the Tonzi Ranch flights to assess the calibration stability of the P-band radar.
