The Stepped Frequency Microwave Radiometer (SFMR) is currently being installed on Air Force Reserve Command WC-130J’s. The first aircraft test flight using a Lockheed Martin designed pod and Pro Sensing SFMR radiometer was conducted in November 2006 from Lockheed Martin Marietta. The test was successful and showed that usable data can be obtained from 500ft above the ocean surface to nearly 30,000ft. The first operational aircraft is scheduled to be delivered in May of 2007. Following aircraft will be modified at the rate of one per month. All 10 aircraft are expected to be complete by March of 2008.
