|Name||Meteo-France Fast Forward Scattering Spectrometer|
|Manufacturer||Meteo-France modified PMS FSSP-100 probe|
|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|
|Operating mode||In situ|
- optical for the DOF selection: 2 concentric photodiodes of different diameters are used instead of the mask on the annulus diode.
The acquisition system needs a few initialization operations before take off or during the flight if malfunctionning occurs - check list available.
mounted on a PMS canister equipped with 2 amphenol connectors (8 and 24 CTS).
Same as the standard PMS FSSP-100.
