Airborne Laboratory Equipped for Special Research Missions

Description ATMOSLAB consists of a fully operational airborne laboratory, a ground mobile laboratory and a parallel computing system. The airborne laboratory is based on a twin-engine turboprop aircraft with an operational range of 2000 km and a maximum operating altitude of 9000m, it is equipped with a cloud, aerosol and precipitation spectrometer (CAPS) or a full wavelength topographic lidar on the left wingtip and a SPEC Hawkeye cloud particle and precipitation probe on the right wingtip. The ground mobile laboratory is equipped with computing systems for data pre-processing for on the ground validation, control systems for UAV flight management, direct communication systems with the aircraft allowing real time bidirectional data transfers and the necessary antennae. The parallel computing system fulfills any data processing needs which arise from research activities.
