On November 2, stratosphere meteorological sounding observation system research and experiment project was approved and verified in Beijing.

The project team targets at meteorological observation demand of stratosphere, designs and researches meteorological balloon in the stratosphere, GPS/Beidou stratosphere sonde and ground reception equipment, data reception and handling software, and sets up meteorological sounding observation system. The verification experts held the view that this project possessed comprehensive research contents and their systemic and technical functions met the requirement of project indicators.

It is informed that among 31 observation experiments, average altitudes of sounding observation reached 45.5 km. The optimized design of balloon casting has broad prospects for wider application.(Nov.23)
