Status: Not defined
Publication State:


This DO228-101 (D-CODE) is a medium tropospheric research aircraft operated by Deutsches Zentrum fur Luft- und Raumfahrt e.V., Germany.
The Dornier 228 is a small twin turbo-prop powered, non-pressurised, shoulder-wing monoplane with rectangular-section fuselage and a double passenger/cargo door. The aircraft is used in the fields of optical remote sensing, oceanography, atmospheric and earth science research. A range of sensors may be installed, for example metric cameras, multi- and hyperspectral scanners, optoelectronic and infrared line scanners, microwave radiometers, synthetic aperture and side-looking airborne radar, scatterometers, LIDAR, etc.
