QinetiQ – PADS® ASonde R3.0
The PADS® Precision AirDrop System ASonde enables aircrews to obtain in-situ weather information for mission execution. The use of data provided by the QinetiQ North America ASonde, in conjunction with the PADS UHF Dropsonde Receiver Sub-system (UHF-DRS) has resulted in a 70% improvement for impact point accuracy for high-altitude ballistic airdrop systems. For guided airdrop systems, the real-time data provided by the PADS ASonde allows mission planners to increase standoff distance and deliver cargo and personnel from higher altitudes with greater precision and safety than conventional methods.
