Wind Sensors & Weather Stations for Ballistic Meteorology and Missile Test Sites

Accurate Trajectory Prediction

Meteorological data is a critical for the accurate prediction of ballistic trajectories within the atmosphere. A projectile moving through the air is effected by a number of forces including wind, temperature, barometric pressure, and humidity, so accurate monitoring of these parameters is essential.
