HEFT-10 is one of the series of airborne projects that are conducted by the EOL RAF to allow instrument developers flight time on the G-V. Initially, HEFT projects were put in place to provide test flight opportunity to the HIAPER HAIS instrument developers. HEFT projects may accommodate other developers if the payload allows. HEFT projects are not considered research field experiments and do not have an important scientific objective. Their goal is instrument validation, performance testing and preparation for research field deployments. HEFT-10 project has been augmented by the NSF to include an extended testing / scientific objective by funding the AMAX-DOAS instrument participation and a three flight deployment to Hawaii to test the instrument in the marine environment. The payload for HEFT-10 includes: * HARP * AMAX-DOAS * LAMS * HOLODEC, SID-2H and 2D-C 25 um * HSRL
