In addition to temperature and humidity profiles, other in-situ measurements of the atmosphere provide valuable information for researchers and the climatological community.
With the help of a radiosonde, a sensor can be flown in the atmosphere to gather the additional information required
The Vaisala DigiCORA® Sounding System MW41 with the Vaisala Radiosonde RS41 can be used to fly third party atmospheric in-situ research instruments and transfer the data for further analysis, together with the radiosonde information on height, wind, ambient temperature and humidity conditions.
The ground equipment transfers the data originating from in-situ instruments in a readable ASCII format, as a .xml file in the .mwx archive. Vaisala encourages all in-situ measuring device manufacturers to build interfaces to the Vaisala Radiosonde RS41 and encourage our customers to express their needs for interfacing different in-situ instruments.
To give them tools for the design work a detailed technical information including message protocol necessary to build a suitable interface for using in-situ instruments with the Vaisala Radiosonde RS41 and the Vaisala DigiCORA® Sounding System MW41 is available per request via Vaisala sales contact.
