Recently, we developed for the United States Special Operations Command an airdrop weather station with satellite communications. This special unit was designed to survive an unretarded airdrop from fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters.
The Remote Miniature Weather Station (RMWS) is dropped from the aircraft, falls to the earth, automatically rights itself and deploys a solid state sensor pod up from the ground. The weather station provides temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, visibility, wind speed and direction.
McQ has also developed a RMWS Support System (RSS) that is a camouflaged airdrop unit that can point communications antennas to relay data via satellite. McQ has developed RemoteSense® surveillance sensors that can be airdropped in camouflage packages.
