UAVSAR on Global Hawk

Friday, June 14, 2013

The antenna frame modification was completed and fit checked to verify that the bath tub radome does not interfere with the radar antenna. During weight and balance of the aircraft on June 6, it was determined that the aircraft cannot be balanced with both LVIS and UAVSAR on the aircraft. Dryden's current plan is to remove UAVSAR from the aircraft, get LVIS ready for a range flight next week, and then reinstall UAVSAR on the aircraft with LVIS offloaded. UAVSAR will then conduct a range flight on or around June 27, followed by the NGC-sponsored Canada flight in early July.
