Real Time Weather & Wind Data

Atmospheric Data Collection System

Our Tactical Atmospheric Sounding Kit (TASK) system continuously measures wind speed, wind direction, pressure, temperature and humidity while ascending through the air column on a six cubic foot weather balloon (about 32 inch diameter). This enables forward deployed personnel to observe and report real-time weather data and winds aloft information for weather forecasting or tactical weather dependent missions such as artillery support, aerial delivery, or embarked air cavalry operations.

TASK consists of a lightweight TASK UHF Radiosonde, a small composite tank of pressurized helium, an inflatable 30 gram weather balloon, and a wearable TASK UHF Transceiver. For aerial resupply by heavy lift aircraft, the TASK data are 100 percent Precision Airdrop System (PADS)/Joint Precision Airdrop System (JPADS) compatible.
