The Hurricane and Severe Storm Sentinel (HS3) Global Hawk Navigation dataset consists of the real-time navigation and housekeeping data that was acquired from various instruments aboard the Global Hawk including the LN-100G IMU navigation system and the Global Hawk flight computer during the HS3 campaign. The goals for HS3 included: assessing the relative roles of large-scale environment and storm-scale internal processes, and addressing the controversial role of the Saharan Air Layer (SAL) in tropical storm formation and intensification as well as the role of deep convection in the inner-core region of storms. This dataset was broadcast on the Global Hawk aircraft network by the NASDAT (NASA Airborne Science Data Acquisition and Transmission unit) as 1 Hz Universal Datagram Protocol (UDP) packets. These UDP packets were generated in IWG1 format, a type of ASCII format supported by all NASA and NCAR aircraft.
