Abstract : Initial research was conducted into establishing the requirements for simulating a wind shear sufficient to calibrate a wind shear probe. The problem areas are outlined and future study areas mentioned. The electrical and electronic components have been up-dated and changes incorporated. Revised instrumentation was constructed, tested, and prepared for field tests. Probe structural modifications were completed and a new parachute recovery system designed and fabricated. All probes were made ready for field testing. (Author)
