UAVSAR – Uninhabited Aerial Vehicle Synthetic Aperture Radar Facility Instrument Suite

Friday, February 22, 2019

The L-band radar aboard the AFRC G-III conducted its first flight of the 2019 on 19 February.  The AFRC G-III had just returned from a major cockpit upgrade.  Both the aircraft, including the platform precision autopilot, and the radar checked out well.  Thursday we will begin a series of California local science flights.

The Ka-band radar pod will be installed aboard the JSC G-III early next week in preparation for the Oceans Melting Greenland mission’s Greenland deployment.  This will be our fourth annual visit of the coastal Greenland glaciers.
