iMet-54 Research

The iMet-54 Research is based on the synoptic iMet-54 radiosonde however comes with a communications port to the radiosonde allowing the connection of external sensors whose data can be transmitted along with the standard radiosonde data.

External sensor examples :

  • EN-SCI Ozonesone (link)
  • EN-SCI En-SCI Cryogenic Frost Point Hygrometer (link)
