Installation of a Bleed Air Heated Radome/Air Motion Sensing System on a Beech King Air 200 Aircraft 851811

The Research Aviation Facility (RAF) of the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) has developed a nose mounted differential pressure air motion sensing system for a Beech King Air 200 aircraft that allows air motion sensing (small scale turbulence) in three axes (horizontal, vertical, and longitudinal) to be taken under a variety of atmospheric conditions. This system is incorporated into a custom designed radome which utilizes engine bleed air heat for anti-ice capability and allows the use of the aircraft storm avoidance radar.
