Instrument

FCDP
FAST CLOUD DROPLET PROBE (FCDP)

Instrument for measuring the concentration and size of cloud droplets. It is usually mounted on the outside of the aircraft. FCDP sizes particles by measuring the amount of light scattered into the collecting optics aperture during particle interaction through a focused laser beam. The instrument can be controlled by a computer inside the aircraft cabin or can be configured to turn on and store data automatically at power ON.
