Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:Goddard's LiDAR, Hyperspectral and Thermal (G-LiHT) airborne imager was installed over the forward nadir portal, tested and used to collect science data on LaRC's UC-12 for the first time. G-LiHT was initially designed to be flown on a wing-mounted pod on LaRC's Cessna 206. A successful test flight and instrument boresight alignment over Gloucester Point, VA, conducted on 21 March 2012 in the King Air demonstrated the flexibility of the G-LiHT system and compatibility with different fixed wing platforms owned and operated by NASA. It also demonstrated the flexibility of the King Air series aircraft for NASA science missions.
