Short Name:

ATom: Flight Dynamics and Environmental Parameters of the NASA DC-8 Aircraft

This dataset contains flight dynamics and environmental parameters (often referred to as housekeeping) specific to the DC-8 aircraft as collected from an assortment of instruments across all four ATom campaigns flown from 2016 through 2018. Measurements include aircraft position, altitude, speed, wind parameters, air temperature, and atmospheric and cabin pressure. These data can be used to understand the interior and exterior conditions and positioning of the DC-8 aircraft at 1-second resolution.
