Abstract: The NOAA Global Hawk In-flight Turbulence Sensor (GHIS) instrument measures acceleration at the location of the instrument. Two accelerometers (2g and 5g full scale) are used on each of two measurement axes. The GHIS accelerometers are from the Model 1221 family manufactured by Silicon Designs, Inc. with a frequency response of 400-600Hz. The data system samples each sensor output at 1000 Hz and processes these data to produce mean, maximum, and root-mean square (RMS) values at 10 Hz. The processed data are then broadcast on the GH internet and brought to the ground via Status and User UDP packets. GHIS operated on the Global Hawk for the Genesis and Rapid Intensification Processes (GRIP) experiment and collected data between Aug 15, 2010 - Sep 23, 2010.
