FAAM will be hosting an OPC Calibration Workshop on Thursday 13th June 2013. This will be a one-day event which aims to:
  • inform/demonstrate to frequent data users how we currently calibrate the wing-mounted core instruments at FAAM (including calibration data processing and software).
  • enhance user confidence in the data.
  • introduce the facilities we have here at FAAM.
  • unify calibration techniques across the community.
  • develop/improve calibration techniques (including the CAPS and CIPs)
