Don Day, a consulting meteorologist from Day Weather used an iMet-3150 and iMet-1 sonde to measure wind conditions before Luke Aikins jumped from a plane at 25,000 ft with no parachute.

It's kind of awesome

The April issue of Meteorological Technology International describes the work being done by NOAA's Atmospheric Turbulence and Diffusion Division with the iMet-XQ sensor.  ATDD was one of the primary beta testers of the XQ and their feedback was essential in improving the product before its 2016 production release.

The artical also describes NOAA's use of the Raytheon Coyote fixed-wing UAV for hurricane research.  The Coyote is equipped with InterMet's iMet-XF sensor package.

InterMet will be presenting a poster at the 2015 AGU Fall Meeting titled "Repurposing Radiosonde Sensors for UAV Integration".

The poster is part of Session A53A, Atmospheric Sensing with UAVs and Nanosatellites: Next-Generation Platfoms for Next-Generation Science.

Location will be Moscone South, Poster Hall, Friday December 18, 1:40 - 6:00PM

The iMet-XF UAV sensor package has been successfully flown by NOAA using the Raytheon Coyote drone.
