Anemometric boom on the front of the Falcon 20 belonging to Safire, the French facility for airborne research. It can measure, at a high rate, the wind speed relative to the plane in three dimensions via its five-hole probe. The device is used to collect data on atmospheric turbulence. The Falcon 20 is a plane used for multidisciplinary research in the upper troposphere and lower stratosphere, in areas such as remote sensing, chemistry and microphysics. Safire is a unit dedicated to climatic and environmental research, satellite validation and aeronautical development. It uses planes for the benefit of scientific research as part of experimental campaigns.
