The primary concept behind the architecture for the mobile facilities is flexibility and portability. In addition to baseline instruments, mobile facilities include the following primary components:

  • Data systems
  • Power
  • Staffing

Primary differences for AMF1 are capabilities for aerosol measurements and guest instruments. Principle differences for AMF2 are capabilities to support marine operations, which the AMF3 was designed to withstand harsh arctic environments.
