Fire Control System – Compact Artillery Meteorological Station

Tactical Meteorological System description

The Tactical meteorological system deploys behind the launcher sections and provides meteorological upper air data for ballistic calculation purposes.

Using the data provided by the radiosonde, a three-dimensional description of the state of the atmosphere is provided at periodic time intervals. This information is utilised to observe the atmospheric conditions that are necessary to accurately analyse the weather. All the data is processed in order to compute pressure, temperature, humidity and wind as a function of position and altitude.
