|Name||FAAM Clear Dome Eppley BBR|
|Name||Broad Band Radiometer|
|Measured parameter||Hemispheric broadband radiance|
Measures up-welling and/or down-welling incident radiation in visible/near infra-red
|External dimension||202mm long 198mm diameter 135x140x230mm logging unit|
|Operating mode||Remote sensing|
The requirement is for a location with a minimum of obstruction to the hemispheric field of view of the radiometers, preferably away from radio transmitter antennas - the pyranometers (measuring solar radiation) are fitted with obscurers (to mask radiation from large obstructions) and the size of these can be minimized with careful choice of location
The instruments should be horizontal to within 3degrees when the aircraft is flying at the mean angle of attack. Airflow past the radiometer bodies is required to reduce thermal stabilization times.
Approved by CAA for use on BAe 146-301.
Available from FAAM
|Could also fit on any aircraft having the following characteristics|
