The ideal semi-automatic upper-air observation station for marine and shipboard use.
ASAP Station semi-automatically deploys Vaisala’s trusted RS41 radiosondes, receives their data, and converts it into meteorological messages in standard WMO format, TEMP SHIP and BUFR. The radiosondes measure air pressure, temperature, relative humidity, and wind direction/ speed. Wind-finding methods are based on a GPS.

It meets or exceeds relevant international construction standards and functions reliably even in the harshest maritime environments. The balloon launcher (Vaisala ALS211) was designed specifically for use at sea and keeps the balloon protected.
