Johannes FrielingsdorfJohannes Frielingsdorf is an electronics engineer with a particular interest for analog and high-frequency designs. He has been working with atmospheric measurement techniques since their university days. First, he specialized in remote sensing and helped to developed components for Doppler wind lidar applications, before shifting his focus to in-situ measurements and joining Graw Radiosondes in 2020. In 2022, he took over the Head of R&D position, being responsible for the sensor development and calibration procedures as well as for groundstation hardware development.
Grow MultiSonde and sounding center - an introduction
A wide variety of user groups rely on multiple simultaneous radio soundings to make mission-critical decisions. Graw addresses these needs with the new scalable, modular, affordable and highly reliable MultiSonde system, which can be configured with 2-16 simultaneous receiver channels and is available in fixed and mobile configurations. The system comes with a completely redesigned GRAWMETX software that allows any number of sounding workstations to be networked to multiple receivers. Graw's sounding center resolves the well-known challenge for observation networks of managing and monitoring a large number of ground stations and remote sites. The new web-based solution is scalable and customizable and provides near-real-time quality control and visualization of sounding data. Deployments can be either cloud-based or on-premises, so data never leaves a segregated network when needed. The system can be accessed from virtually any device without additional installation, and data can be read or updated over the IP network.
