It was a material supply project awarded to Bayanat Engineering Qatar by Qatar Civil Aviation Authority (QCAA). The scope is to supply Vaisala Radiosonde and Synthetic Balloon’s.
A radiosonde is an electronic device that is used to measure meteorological variables in the atmosphere. The instrument smaller than the size of a coffee cup, is lifted to the upper atmosphere up to altitudes of 20 to 40 km by weather balloon filled with helium or hydrogen. The radiosonde has been the basis of weather forecasting and climate research since first attempts to design such a device by French, German and Soviet scientists in the late 1920s.
The Scope of supply is as follows:
Vaisala RS41 Radiosonde – 800 units
Synthetic Balloon’s – 800 units
