Online –?? The new Vaisala Radiosonde RS41, the heart of Vaisala’s 4th Generation Soundings, will be launched October 15th at Meteorological Technology World Expo (MTWE2013) in Brussels.

The Vaisala Radiosonde RS41 streamlines launch preparations, reduces human errors, and lowers operational costs of upper-air weather observations, while delivering industry-leading data accuracy.

The new RS41 features customer-driven design improvements, and enhancements to the humidity and temperature sensors that ensure the data reliability and accuracy customers expect from Vaisala.

Using the RS41 and the Vaisala DigiCORA?? Sounding System MW41 the radiosonde launch process has been streamlined in various ways through the use of status lights, wireless connection to the MW41, maintenance-free ground check procedure, as well as advanced pre- and post-flight diagnostics.

The new compact design is easier to handle and 61% lighter, allowing 20% more launches using the same amount of gas as needed with the RS92. The radiosonde unwinder has also been redesigned for ease of use.

The Vaisala 4th Generation Soundings comprises the Vaisala Radiosonde RS41, Vaisala DigiCORA Sounding System MW41 and the Vaisala RI41 Ground Check Device. An upgrade path for any Vaisala sounding system is available, allowing customers to upgrade their existing systems to Vaisala DigiCORA Sounding System MW41.

The MW41 system can utilize both RS92 and RS41 radiosondes.

Vaisala soundings solution includes the possibility to fully automate sounding operations. As the leader in automatic soundings, Vaisala will make RS41 upgrades for the AUTOSONDE systems available, ensuring a straightforward upgrade path and securing the existing investments of the customers.
