Last week the next generation Airborne Visible and Infrared Imaging Spectrometer (AVIRIS-ng) was continuing flights for the California Methane Campaign on the Dynamic Aviation King Air aircraft. Over the weekend there was a vicarious calibration experiment over the Ivanpah Playa at the CA and NV border as part of the ongoing AVIRIS calibration and validation efforts. A team from JPL was deployed to make in-situ surface spectral measurements along with atmospheric column measurements. On Monday the sensor and aircraft was tasked to fly from CA to FL to participate in the survey for Falcon 9 debris at KSC. The SpaceX team at KSC has setup a large FTP data pipe to transfer the AVIRIS-ng data from KSC to JPL. The aircraft is scheduled to return to CA over the weekend to resume the CA Methane Campaign.
