Flying laboratory is intended for measurements of optical and meteorological parameters of the atmosphere and air composition, as well as for sensing of the underlying surface, including the water surface.
The aerosol chambers allow modeling of various phenomena arising in the atmosphere and affecting the propagation of optical radiation in it, in particular, fogs and smog, smokes from burning of fuel or other substances, precipitation (rain, drizzle).
