Researchers from Penn State University used Sparv’s novel instrument “Swarmsonde” for a research project earlier this year. The purpose was to capture thermodynamic data within and around a tornado. The data obtained will help explain how tornadoes are formed. This new instrument can measure up to 32 sondes at the same time and stay in the air for more than an hour. Click on Swarmsonde for specifications about the sounding tool.
News article from MTWE:
Sparv Embedded will have a booth (no. 4018) at the MTWE event in Amsterdam (October 10-12), and also hold a presentation on October 11th at 10.30 on Sparv Sensors.
If you will be there, we’d like to meet you! Please notify Anders at email@example.com if you are coming and want to meet.
All the best,
Almost all of the Sparv team will be on summer holiday July 17 – August 14. It will be very nice after a fun but stressful spring. We will have limited access to email. For inquires, try firstname.lastname@example.org. That is your best chance to get a response. We will try to answer your emails as fast as we can!
Have a great summer!
The first Sparv Sensors system is now delivered to a happy customer! Sparv Sensors is a great addition to the market of atmospheric measurement equipment. Our developers did a great job to make this happen.
Do you have any questions about the system? Please send an email to email@example.com
The miniature radiosonde Windsond with its small size and nice features makes it attractive to many markets. For example, last fall Windsond was used on the Hot Air Ballooning event: “Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta”. The organisation was very pleased with the equipment. The Chief Meteorologist at the event, Mr Brad Temeyer: “I really enjoyed using the Windsond at balloon events during marginal situations. Personally, the data provides the confidence in making a safety conscience decision.”

All the best,
Anders is at EGU in Vienna from Tuesday 25 to Friday 29. He is there to discuss how we can help with atmospheric measurements with small balloons and UAVs. Are you also attending? In that case I think you should contact him at email@example.com and book a meeting.
Still a lot going on!
Sorry for the silence on the website. All Sparv members have been so busy lately that the blog has been some what forgotten. We would like to say that development of our UAV sensor equipment Sparv Sensors, new Radio Receiver RR2 and the Android software app are going good. We are now talking weeks instead of months. We even shipped the first RR2 to a customer this week, which is a big step in Sparv’s short history (see picture).
RR2 and Android – The RR2 that was shipped this week with some minor issues, which have been corrected in the next version. If everything goes according to the plan, it should be ready to be shipped to customers during the next month. Make sure to order your RR2. It will optimize your sounding experience considerably as you can operate cordless on the ground via Bluetooth! Please read about it: http://windsond.com/rr2_flyer_v3.pdf. The accompanying software app for Android is also on the verge of being ready. If everything goes to the plan, we will have a beta version ready in a few weeks time!
Sparv Sensors – The new complete plug and play sensor solution is getting close. Sparv will test the system in just a months time. We are very excited about it and believe Sparv Sensors will be a great addition to the toolbox of atmospheric instruments.

Just recently Sparv Embedded received information that we will get fundings from the Swedish innovation agency in order to speed up the development of Sparv Sensors.
