This dataset provides acceleration data across the fuselage in X,Y,Z directions as well as temperature and pressure data from the Rosemount sensors. Data is available in 1, 10, 100, and 200 Hz frequencies. For the Gulfstream-159 research aircraft deployed until 2018, the gust probe was situated in the nose cone of the aircraft. A new instrument will be deployed on the Challenger 850.
