Launched from a long-duration unmanned semi-submersible vehicle, this rocketsonde can be used under severe oceanic conditions which will be more economical and applicable in the future - Hongbin Chen, A Chinese scientistEarlier ocean-based platforms like Ships, satellite aircraft, were mainly used to collect the required data which were logistically expensive and impractical to deploy. However, the data collected were also patchy and therefore unreliable for marine and meteorological research. The Chinese team so now plans to use unmanned semi-submersible vehicles to provide a network of observations at sea to extend weather data over the ocean. This can help to predict when and where dangerous weather phenomenon, including typhoons and hurricanes, are going to happen. With the help of the specially equipped USSVs that will provide with marine meteorological data, researchers hope to hurricane fill some of the data gaps thus providing the scientists to make better predictions and monitoring on oceanographic phenomena.
