HSRL-2

Yes
Total Flight Time: 
4 hours
Comments: 
This was the first in a series of flights for the HSRL-2 instrument in preparation for ORACLES. Flew four hours to do a checkout of the modified instrument. Initially, the instrument temperature at altitude indicated the cooling system was not working correctly, so a call was made to return to base. But after the chiller power was cycled, the sensor indicated enough of a drop in temperature to run the lasers, so the flight continued as planned. Automated laser alignment routines worked really well.
