Learjet IMECC campaign

16.10.2009

On behalf of MPI for Biogeochemistry Jena enviscope successfully finalized a flight campaign to validate ground based Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR) spectrometers measuring the total column of CO2 and CH4 at high accuracy. The Learjet 35A D-CGFD was instrumented with a Cavity Ringdown System for CO2, CH4 und H2O, a CO analyser and a flask sampler. Spiral flights at the stations Byalystok (Poland), Trainou (France), Bremen, Garmisch-Partenkirchen, and Jena (Germany) were performed between FL420 and the boundary layer.

HALO certification, update

27.05.2009

End of January we informed about our activities to support certification work for the new German research aircraft HALO. Most important milestone to perform so-called minor and major changes on the HALO aircraft was the intended approval of Gomolzig Flugzeug und Maschinenbau GmbH (GFM) as „National Design Organisation“. We are happy to inform that GFM now received the approval of the German Aviation Authority Luftfahrt-Bundesamt !

We are now able to offer „full service“ to scientists in instrument design, manufacturing, documentation AND certification. More details are given here…

Intake meets HALO

12.02.2009

On the occasion of the Critical Design Review meeting (CDR) for the new HALO „Trace Gas Inlet“ (TGI) the first prototype inlet was pre- installed to HALO. The inlet fits to its mounting provisions and passed the CDR successfully. A first demonstration of the variability of the tubing system was presented to the colleagues of the „Institut für Physik der Atmosphäre“ (IPA) at „Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt“ (DLR).
