Ballistic meteorology / missile test sites
Wind sensors & weather stations for ballistic meteorology and missile test sites
Accurate trajectory prediction
Meteorological data is critical for the accurate prediction of ballistic trajectories within the atmosphere. A projectile moving through the air is affected by a number of forces including wind, temperature, barometric pressure, and humidity, so accurate monitoring of these parameters is essential.
Recommended meteorological instruments for ballistic missile sites...
MetConnect is a compact multi-sensor professional weather station providing wind speed and direction, barometric pressure, temperature, humidity and dew point measurements, with capability to connect auxiliary sensors and combine all inputs into one serial data output.
Gill WindSonic is a low-cost 2-axis ultrasonic anemometer, providing wind speed and direction data in a robust housing. This anemometer has no moving parts, offering maintenance-free operation in a wide range of applications.
WindMaster is a precision 3D anemometer, offering sonic temperature, speed of sound and U,V & W vector outputs at 20Hz (32Hz option). WindMaster has an aluminium/carbon fibre construction and will monitor 0-45m/s (0-100mph) wind speed.
