Evaluation & Upgrades to ARM FFSSP and FCDP
15 June 2011 - 30 November 2011
Lead Scientist: Paul Lawson
Both FCDP and FFSSP probes were acquired by DOE under the ARRA procurement program. These are advanced versions of the FSSP and CDP. Both the FCDP and FFSSP incorporate state-of-the-art electronics that process and record particle-by-particle measurements that are used to remove shattered ice particles, coincidence and additional statistical measurements. The FCDP also incorporates a slit-based optical system that is designed to reduce uncertainties in sample volume determination. SPEC, Inc. evaluated the performance of these ARM probes.
