A new radiosonde is needed to increase the accuracy, reliability, and speed of processing of upper-atmosphere observations. Two previous theses have investigated a pulse-modulated transmitter and more accurate sensors. This thesis proposes a method of combining the two into a workable radiosonde. Solid-state technology is used throughout including MOS integrated circuits, linear integrated circuits, and a silicon pressure transducer. System tests conducted under environmental conditions indicate satisfactory results. Author
