PROCEDURE 5: NIGHTTIME TRACKING INSTRUCTIONS
The following steps are to be taken if nighttime tracking
is anticipated. If no flights will be performed after dusk,
proceed directly to task 2.
a. Ensure that the TRACKER MODE switch on the front of the DAU is in the NIGHT position.
b. Ensure that the underside, trailing edge of all blades is as clean as possible. This is necessary for optimum
adhesion of the reflective tape.
c. Place a single, 4-ft strip of reflective tape on the underside, trailing edge of each blade as shown in figure 7.
Ensure that the tape is smooth and as straight as possible using the edge of the blade as a reference.
d. If verification of the tape placement is desired, it can be viewed by holding a flashlight near your head and
shining it at the rotating blades. Any misplaced sections of the tape will stand out.
