The FAAM Airborne Laboratory is undergoing transformational change. The Mid-Life Upgrade Programme will improve the aircraft’s atmospheric measurement capabilities through a number of instrument development projects. New instruments will be added to the aircraft, and several current instruments will be upgraded.

The MLU team will introduce a selection of these new instruments in an upcoming webinar. This is the second of a series of regular sessions to outline the scientific capabilities of the upgraded instrumentation available on board the FAAM aircraft from 2026. You will have the opportunity to ask specific questions about these projects and get the latest updates on their status.

Learn more about:

  • THOR – chemical analysis for atmospheric pollutants
  • LOKI – gas concentration detection and flux measurements
  • AirFAGE – atmospheric gas detection
  • VOCUS – real-time measurements of volatile organic compounds
  • Diode Laser Hygrometer – humidity and water vapour measurements
