Periodic Report - COPAL (COmmunity heavy-PAyload Long endurance Instrumented Aircraft for Tropospheric Research in Environmental and Geo-Sciences)

Project ID: 212205


This is the periodic summary report of the COPAL project. Funded under the the European Commission (EC)'s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), COPAL has the objective of providing the European scientific community with an unique research aircraft platform, capable of reaching and operating in any remote area in the world and offering a heavy-payload for integration of a large panoply of instruments for research in environmental and Geo-sciences.

COPAL's objectives are distributed over six work packages (WPs) described in the report. WP1 refers to mmanagement and coordination, WP2 describes legal structure aircraft specifications and construction cost, WP3 is about operation and logistics, WP4 covers instrumentation development and WP6 covers the scientific governance. At the end of the summary, the expected results and the potential impact are discussed.
