Unequaled resolution and accuracy of water-vapor and temperature profiles!

High resolutions of up to 1 s and 7.5 m

Temperature (T):
    Systematic error < 0.5 K
Water-vapor mixing ratio (WVMR):
    Systematic error < 5 %

T and WVMR profiles exceed WMO goal and breakthrough requirements*, respectively, for nowcasting/VSRF in the lower troposphere
