Airborne Laser Test Bed Experiment Postponed

10-FYI-0001
August 21, 2010

The Airborne Laser Test Bed experiment scheduled for Sunday morning is postponed. Trouble shooting indicates that a hot bypass valve on the aircraft is in an abnormal condition thus not allowing for proper component cooling . The team is evaluating the potential causes. A new date for the experiment will be set for the upcoming week.
