Airborne Vertical Atmospheric Profiling System
The Airborne Vertical Atmospheric Profiling System (AVAPS) uses dropwindsonde and Global Positioning System (GPS) receivers to measure the atmospheric state parameters of pressure, temperature, humidity, and wind during descent. Data are telemetried to the research aircraft during flight. The inner electronic components of the AVAPS dropsonde consist of precision temperature, pressure and humidity sensors, a low powered telemetry transmitter, a GPS receiver and a microprocessor.
