Gulfstream To Provide A Modified Gulfstream V To The National Center For Atmospheric Research
GULFSTREAM won a contract valued at $49.8 million to provide a modified Gulfstream V to the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) for a range of environmental research missions. Gulfstream named the research aircraft HIAPER, for High-Performance, Instrumented, Airborne Platform for Environmental Research, and said the aircraft is slated to enter service in 2005. "The Gulfstream V HIAPER enables us to investigate essential questions concerning the earth's changing climate that have previously been beyond our grasp," said Timothy Killeen, director of NCAR.
