GRIP DC-8 NAVIGATION AND HOUSEKEEPING DATA V1Entry ID: gripnavdc8
Abstract: This dataset contains aircraft navigational data obtained during the GRIP campaign (15 Aug 2010 - 30 Sep 2010). The NASA DC-8 is outfitted with a navigational recording system which in combination with REVEAL provides detailed flight parameters such as airspeed, altitude, roll/pitch/yaw angles, ground speed, flight level wind speed, temperature and many others. The Research Environment for ... Vehicle-Embedded Analysis on Linux (REVEAL) system is a configurable embedded system for facilitating integration of instrument payloads with vehicle systems and communication links. REVEAL systems currently serve as onboard data acquisition, processing, and recording systems. NASA has Altair-Class REVEAL systems operating on several airborne science platforms, including ER-2, DC-8, WB-57F, P-3B Orion and G-III. This class of full-featured instrument is roughly the size of a loaf of bread and weights 10-20 lbs.
