ARM’s manned aircraft include the Gulfstream-159 and multiple aircraft platforms outside the DOE. Aircraft choice is dictated by science requirements—such as the needed measurements and desired flight profile—and aircraft availability.


Using a full suite of instruments, the G-1 will obtain in situ data sets during field campaigns.

The Gulfstream-159 (G-1) twin turboprop aircraft, owned by Battelle Memorial Institute since 1988 and operated by the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), serves as an airborne atmospheric research laboratory for DOE and other users.
