|Name||FAAM Pyrgeometer 4-50 um 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||160mm long 202mm diameter. Logging unit 135x140x230mm|
|Operating mode||Remote sensing|
Upper and lower facing PYRGEOMETER (4-50 microns) fitted with silicon dome. Identical instruments fitted on top and below aircraft to measure broadband hemispheric infrared radiation.
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
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
Approved by CAA for use on BAe 146-301.
Available as option on FAAM BAe146
|Could also fit on any aircraft having the following characteristics|
