Re: NWS Sonde Chase and Recovery

Hank Riley

Graw is a German company which recently won a NOAA/NWS contract to supply sondes to more than half of the US upper air network of 71 stations.  The rest will be from Vaisala it looks like.  The Lockheed Martin sondes, made in the US and formerly widely used by the NWS, seem to be left out in the cold now with just a few NWS stations still using the LMS-6. They're also used by the Vandenberg and Cape Canaveral Space Force installations.
