This report describes the design and construction of Rocket Radiosonde Set ANDMQ- XE-1. This sonde is radically different from other rocket sondes currently in use in that it provides four channels of simultaneous data, and features modular construction. Presently, an ion density sensor, a thermoconductivity pressure sensor, and two temperature sensors are included in this sonde. The ground data readout system is described. Laboratory tests show that this sonde is capable of continuous and reliable operation. It is easily handled in the field and prepared for flight. Four flight tests to date show potential good sonde performance and ground data-handling equipment sufficiency. Author
