XMET Aids Team at Plane Wreck Site
Last month, the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, U.S. Air Force, Alaska Army National Guard and Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency used a portable weather station, developed with support from the Office of Naval Research (ONR), to monitor conditions at a 1952 crash site of a military transport aircraft.
Called the Expeditionary Meteorology System, or XMET, the station is mounted on a tripod and can be assembled in five minutes by two people with no tools. Its solar battery-powered system uses sensors to compile real-time measurements of rain, wind, temperature and visibility—relaying hourly weather information via satellite to planners who can use the data to cancel or proceed with a mission.
