Vaisala Radiotheodolite RT20A

Radiotheodolite RT20A

The RT20A  consists of portable modules which can be integrated easily into your own mechanized transportation concept. The RT20A, as a part of the complete tactical Vaisala sounding system including 1680 MHz Vaisala radiosondes, provides highly accurate upper-air meteorological data (wind speed/direction, humidity, temperature and pressure) in standard message formats. Easy to transport and quick to deploy, the RT20A has proven to be the world’s most advanced and accurate RDF antenna for upper-air sounding. Alongside the RT20A, the Vaisala MARWIN® Sounding System MW32 automates data handling and provides messages in relevant STANAG and WMO formats.
