Project Summary


The NSF has requested funding for a High-performance Instrumented Airborne Platform for Environmental Research (HIAPER), an advanced airborne research platform to serve NSF’s scientific research needs over the next several decades. NSF requested that NCAR, consistent with its role as a Federally-Funded Research and Development Center, propose a Systems Integration Plan to cover acquisition, modification, instrumentation, and eventual operation of the new aircraft. This plan, submitted through UCAR, parent corporation for NCAR, proposes management of the overall HIAPER acquisition.


This proposed plan presents scientific needs for HIAPER consistent with the overall NSF emphasis on understanding and predicting the earth system. Proposed HIAPER capabilities, especially altitude capabilities to 50,000 feet and range capabilities of greater than 6000 nautical miles, match many of the observational challenges inherent in an emphasis on atmosphere, ocean, land, and ice interactions. The plan describes five specific tasks: Specifications, Aircraft Acquisition and Modification, Installation of Research Infrastructure, Instrumentation, and Preparation for Operations. ATD proposes extensive community review and oversight throughout the acquisition. In particular, ATD proposes to establish a new HIAPER Advisory Committee with majority membership from the university research community.


ATD will lead and provide most of the staff for the HIAPER effort. ATD will manage this project through a HIAPER team composed of ATD, NCAR and UCAR staff. The team will also include staff from NCAR science divisions such as the Atmospheric Chemistry Division and the Mesoscale and Microscale Meteorology Division and from UCAR units, including Corporate Affairs and Finance and Administration. ATD will hire a full-time project manager for the term of the overall acquisition. ATD will contract additional assistance from the USAF Commercial Aircraft Integrated Project Team, a group at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base with extensive experience in acquiring and overseeing the modification of commercial aircraft for Department of Defense and other federal aviation needs.


The overall process, from development of specifications through flight testing to research operations, will take approximately five years. Manufacture and modification of the airframe and development of advanced research instrumentation constitute the largest portions of that schedule. Sufficient definition of the research missions and payloads will occur early in the process to help specify structural modifications. Instrument development will begin early in the schedule to allow completion in phase with the availability of the modified, outfitted aircraft
