Abstract: The DC-8 Dropsonde System (D8D) uses dropwinsonde and Global
Positioning System (GPS) receivers to measure the atmospheric state
parameters (temp, humidity, windspeed/direction pressure) and location
in 3 dimensional space during the sonde's descent once each half
second. Measurements are transmitted to the aircraft from the time of
release until impact with the ocean's surface.
