We are seeking base support to fund the operations and data analysis of our airborne gas chromatographs (GCs), including PAN and other Trace Hydro-halocarbon ExpeRiment (PANTHER; 2 channel GC-Mass Selective Detector or MSD, 4 channel GC-Electron Capture Detector or ECD, Tunable Diode Laser or TDL, water), Unmanned aircraft system Chromatograph for Atmospheric Trace Species (UCATS, 2 channel GC-ECD, TDL water, O3 photometer), Lightweight Airborne Chromatograph Experiment (LACE, 3 channel balloon GC-ECD), and Airborne Chromatograph for Atmospheric Trace Species-IV (ACATS-IV, 4 channel GC-ECD) for upcoming missions. We are seeking base salary support for 3 CIRES (part time to full time) contractors for all NASA airborne work during FY 2009-2012 (four years). This base support is for future airborne missions that may include the NASA WB-57F, NASA Global Hawk UAS, NASA IKHANA UAS (Predator-B), and the JPL remote balloon gondola. Travel funds for a possible TC4 mission to Guam in 2010 or 2011, additional UAS missions after UAS AVE, and balloon remote gondola flight in 2009 or 2010 will be requested separately as supplemental funding once the exact time period and locations of the missions are decided. No salary funds are being requested for the NOAA employee and Principal Investigator, Dr. James Elkins. NOAA covers his salary. There will be minor requests for spare parts, expendables (gases), and meeting travel in the base support.
