- Windsock is the heart of the pibal tracking system. It
consists of the hardware and software necessary to process the input data
and to calculate and present
the wind directions and headings at the different altitudes. A theodolite or a compass and
clinometer are necessary to collect the incremental pibal position data.
- Infrared Printer
- The optional Infrared Printer provides an easy way to get hard copies
of your data in the field. Handheld, battery powered and cable-free,
it provides go-anywhere convenience.
- Electronic Theodolite
- The optional Electronic Theodolite is a sophisticated miniature
electronic instrument used to accurately measure the horizontal and vertical
angles necessary to track the pibal's position. The sampled data is
automatically sent to the Windsock computer via the included cable link.
An optional Sighting Mount provides a stable aiming platform and the
optional Sighting Scope provides an optical aid for accurate tracking into
the higher altitudes.
- Carrying Case
- The optional Carrying Case protects your equipment from damage by
providing a virtually indestructible enclosure that is
airtight, dust-proof, corrosion-proof and watertight. A custom padded
storage area protects each piece of equipment from the effects of impact,
vibration and shock.
