GPS SONDE uses dropwinsonde and Global Positioning System (GPS)
receivers to measure the atmospheric state parameters (temp,
humidity, windspeed/ direction pressure) and location in 3
dimensional space during the sonde's descent once each half
second. Measurements are transmitted to the aircraft from the
time of release until impact with the ocean's surface.
