Detailed Description

NASA ER-2 aircrafts have played an important role in Earth science research because of their ability to fly into the lower stratosphere at subsonic speeds, enabling virtual satellite simulation missions. In Hawaii, the NASA ER-2 is being used to collect high altitude scientific data that will help scientists calibrate, validate, and simulate remote sensing data from future satellites. NASA photo.
