Dropsonde No 6

Jonathan S Hooper
A dropsonde is an expendable weather reconnaissance device designed to be dropped from an aircraft at altitude over water to measure (and therefore track) storm conditions as the device falls to the surface. The sonde contains a GPS receiver, along with pressure, temperature, and humidity (PTH) sensors to capture atmospheric profiles and thermodynamic data.
