High/Low Data Collection Rate Notes

Dividing a transatlantic flight into two sections, we have two different types of flight activity:

High Data Rate is data which we would like in high resolution. This occurs during Sunrise, Sunset, Flight Start, and Flight End.

Low Data Rate occurs the rest of the time.

During a typical 72 hour flight, you have 1 Flight Start, 1 Flight End, 2 Sunsets, and 3 Sunrises.

Period Interest Time
Flight Start 2 Hours
Sunset 2 Hours
Sunrise 4 Hours
Flight End 3 Hours

During a typical flight, 19 hours of High Data Rate, 53 hours of Low Data Rate.
