|Name||FAAM DMT Cloud Droplet Probe|
|Manufacturer||Droplet Measurement Technologies|
|Name||Cloud Droplet Size Spectrometer|
|Acronym||Cloud Droplet Spectrometer|
|Measured parameter||Cloud droplet size spectra, number concentration and water content,|
Optical probe. Cloud droplets pass through sample volume, where they scatter a laser beam. Scattered light picked up by detectors allowing size to be determined. Bulk quantities such as total droplet number concentrations, liquid water content, or effective droplet radius can be derived.
|Measurement(s)||Clouds & Precipitation|
|External dimension||PMS/DMT canister mounting instrument|
|Operating mode||In situ|
Incorporates DMT particle-by-particle modifications, to record inter-arrival times of 256 droplets per second.
28Vdc (30W) for instrument operation,
Certified on FAAM BA146 aircraft
Standard fit on the FAAM BAe146 aircraft
|Could also fit on any aircraft having the following characteristics|
