A High Altitude Weather Aircraft Data System HAWADS installed in a Learjet Model 36 aircraft is described. The aircraft was selected because of its high altitude performance and long range. The instrument system includes flight conditions sensors and five optical particle spectrometer probes. Two are very high speed probes for making 2D images of clouds and precipitation particles. A computer is included for realtime computations of cloud water content and radar reflectivity. Principles of operation, detailed operational, calibration and maintenance procedures are described.
