Validate the Doppler cloud radar estimates of IWC in HighIWC regions (retrieved from reflectivity and Doppler velocity) using G-II and Falcon 20 in situ data. And use the validated radar estimates to take advantage of the vertical resolution of the cloud radar to extrapolate the IWC & PSD in situ data (G II & F20 trajectories) for the new icing envelope calculations.

They briefed NASA on FTA's financial capability as it relates to its ability to perform the contract. On September 25th FTA communicated to their employees not to report to work until further notice. To reduce risk exposure to NASA and its partners all government (and partner) provided equipment at FTA were moved to the fullest extent possible to NASA DFRC for storage. Shipment of equipment started on September 26th. Note: EASA-HighIWC / HIWC / HAIC meeting held on September 24th, 2012 with the objective to review contingency plan(s) and define way forward December 2012EASA.2011.OP.28Page 7 Federal Aviation Administration National Aeronautics and Space Administration High Ice Water Content (HIWC) Flight Campaign Status

NASA and Environment Canada have secured all equipment on the aircraft including the instrument racks and associated avionics. Some items were not removed from the aircraft (i.e. satcom antenna) as they were too integrated into the aircraft.

It is presumed at this time that path will take at least until 2015 and could have more than one deployment. The outcome of the Falcon 20 contingency discussions is that both the Associate Administrators want some additional information before a final decision can be made December 2012EASA.2011.OP.28Page 10 Federal Aviation Administration National Aeronautics and Space Administration High Ice Water Content (HIWC) Flight Campaign Status
