"The goal of this program is to develop a small, inexpensive, rugged, easy-to-use Sub-Web Meteorological Monitoring System to collect environmental data and transmit these data to a Central Node. Meteorological stations that can measure atmospheric andenvironmental information are needed for battlefield awareness. Sensors to measure the following meteorological parameters were evaluated in Phase I and a sensor suite was compiled to measure: wind speed and direction, temperature and relative humidity,atmospheric pressure, visibility, precipitation, location, orientation, soil moisture and soil temperature and weather-impacted terrain conditions. The meteorological monitoring system is comprised of an array of remote meteorological monitoring stationscollecting and transmitting data via spread-spectrum wireless transceivers to a Central Node that will process and transmit the data for immediate use in the I-MET Battlefield Awareness System. The greatest design challenges in the Phase II includepackaging some of the Meteorological Stations into a rugged, lightweight container capable of airborne delivery.There will be two varieties of the Remote Weather Stations, (1) an air-deployable unit capable of measuring wind speed, wind direction, temperature, relative humidity, pressure, location, and orientation; (2) a hand-placed, flexible unit that has thecapable of adding or removing sensors to perform a special function in battlefield condi
