Example text

The book serves, in part, as a handbook to guide engineers and researchers involved in airborne research in the integration of airborne instrumentation, its operation in flight, and processing of acquired data. It also provides recommendations for the development of novel instrumentation and examples of successful projects to help researchers in the design of future flight campaigns. The substantial success of instrumentation on board aircraft platforms in the past decades suggests that instrumented aircraft will continue to play an important role in meeting the ongoing challenge of understanding the processes in our complex Earth system.

Larger particles cross the flow lines due to their greater inertia, thereby complicating or simplifying sampling strategies depending on the objective. Particles approach sampling inlets with the airspeed of the aircraft. In clouds, droplets and ice particles affect inlet probe surfaces, and larger particles may shatter into many smaller ones. This effect may invalidate the intended measurements if the additional particles cannot be properly accounted for. New inlet designs have minimized these shattering effects.

The importance of this standard procedure in aviation is the reliable vertical separation of traffic in the air. Safety assessment requests a classification of the measurement to a defined accuracy. On the other hand, the given pressure altitude may deviate hundreds of meters from geometric altitude, which is nowadays easily reported from satellite-based measurements or calculated from independent atmospheric profile data. Also, the standard setting cannot be used in the vicinity of ground-based obstacles.
