InterMet Africa offers customisable installations for ship-based meteorological measurements
The iMet-P pilotsonde is a transmitter-only type radiosonde that can be used with a tracking radiotheodolite to make upper-air Pilot Wind observations.
The Ground Check Unit allows an operator to check the correct functioning of a radiosonde before releasing it for a sounding
The iMet-54 research radiosonde utilises the XData protocol to seamlessly connect to 3rd party sensors such as an ECC Ozonesonde.
The iMet-54 is a new-generation radiosonde utilising the latest in sensor technologies. Improved measurement techniques help to overcome previous limitations such as super-cooling and sensor icing.
The Radiosonde Configuration Unit provides communication to the radiosonde from within the D-Met Sounding Software.
The iMet-50 pilotsonde is based on the full-featured iMet-54 radiosonde design. It offers winds-only sounding profiles at an affordable price.
