Title: NOAA`s airborne research platforms and remote sensing capabilities

Abstract

The NOAA Aircraft Operations Center, based at MacDill AFB in Tampa, FL, currently operates a fleet of 13 research and survey aircraft ranging in size from a McDonnell-Douglas MD-500D helicopter to its two flagship WP-3D Orions. These aircraft are used to support a wide variety of NOAA, interagency and international investigations in hurricanes and other severe storms, global climate change, air chemistry and pollution, oceanography, fisheries and other environmental issues. fleet will be joined in July, 1996 by a Gulfstream G-IV SP which, while initially slated for hurricane surveillance and reconnaissance, will in future years provide investigators with a high-altitude platform for atmospheric observations in the upper troposphere and lower stratosphere on an intercontinental scale. These aircraft, their capabilities and suite of remote sensors will be discussed. 3 refs., 1 fig., 9 tabs.
