Abstract:

Efforts were directed to the manner in which functions performed in the present radiosonde by means of tube circuits and mechanical clocks and switches can be performed by integrated circuits. The use of integrated circuitry, coupled with work now being done to develop a tunnel diode oscillator for the transmitter, should result in a size reduction of 95 or greater, as well as considerable savings in weight and power consumption. The rocket version of the radiosonde is an application to which integrated circuitry is ideally suited if digital type circuits are used.
