A Carrier Balloon for Tropical Soundings

During July 1970 to January 1971, a series of tests was conducted to demonstrate the feasibility of obtaining wind data in the tropical troposphere and lower stratosphere by location of a sonde dropped from a carrier balloon. In addition to the results of these tests, a full system design to be tested in 1974 is also described. This system will use the geostationary synchronous meteorological satellite (SMS) as the data link and can be implemented in conjunction with the GARP Data Acquisition Test.
