Automates the synoptic upper-air observations and saves costs and gives the freedom to extend the coverage of upper-air networks everywhere - in populated areas, remote locations, or in climates ranging from polar to tropical.

Key Benefits

Minimizes Operating Costs
The Vaisala AUTOSONDE® has the capacity to perform entirely automatically for 24 consecutive synoptic soundings. It is only at this point the Vaisala AUTOSONDE® is restocked and checked manually.
Easy, inexpensive installation and reconfigurations
Whether it is a new station, or a replacement of an older system, setting up and reconfiguring the Vaisala AUTOSONDE® is quick and inexpensive.
Remote Flexible Operation saves time and money
Vaisala AUTOSONDE® can be configured remotely from a central location by using the Remote Control System. It also allows the remote interruption of the regular sounding schedule to measure interesting events such as extreme weather phenomena.
