Abstract : An atmospheric profiler system for measuring wind shear in the first 100 meters above the ocean surface was developed in FY 82 by the Instrumentation Branch (Code 352), Ocean Technology Division, Naval Ocean Research and Development Activity. The delivered system consists of four multi-sensor, self-contained, telemetry units, which can be suspended from the tether of a buoyant balloon, and a four-frequency receiving subsystem. Each telemetry unit measures air temperature and wind speed; one of the units also measures barometric pressure. The sensor signals are composited in each of the units, and radio frequency is transmitted to a distant receiver. At the receiver site, the individual sensor signals are presented at the back of the receiver unit as analog signals ready for further processing and display.
