We are currently working with International Met Systems (Grand Rapids, MI) as they develop radiosonde sensors that will meet our rigorous standards for measurements of pressure, temperature, and relative humidity. We have successfully received, recorded, and displayed FPH, ozondsonde, and radiosonde data telemetered from iMet sondes launched in Boulder. Data from recent balloon flights were sent to the manufacturer, providing feedback about the in-flight performance of their sensors. We are hopeful that this iterative process will eventuate in a radiosonde that meets our needs for high accuracy and precision measurements.

Radiosonde model iMet-1

Our new iMet data receiving program stores incoming data and permits real-time, user-selectable data displays
