A new research project has started in 2003 to develop Continuous CO2 Measurement Equipment (CME) and Automatic Air Sampling Equipment (ASE) for commercial airlines. CMEs are planning to be installed on five aircrafts and fly to South East Asia, East Asia, Europe, North America, Pacific and Australia. Routine air sampling by ASE will be done twice a month between Japan and Australia. After issuing the certification, first observation flight by Boeing 747-400 will be conducted in October, 2005. Preliminary observation by small research aircraft indicates that CME produces reasonable results.
