Special Considerations:
A ­ Instrument requires a dedicated operator on board the aircraft.
B ­ Special software tools are required for routine processing, display and analysis of the data acquired by this instrument.
C ­ Data recorded on a separate data acquisition system, not on RAF's ADS.
D ­ Data acquired by this instrument requires unique post-processing.
E ­ This instrument requires a separate request form
