Weather forecasting models depend on detailed observations of the atmosphere to produce accurate forecasts. Satellites have significantly increased the amount of temperature and moisture data collected, but the availability of wind data at multiple levels of the atmosphere has lagged behind. Harris developed the HyperCube™ three-dimensional sounding instrument to bridge that gap.

More detailed wind information has been identified as a top priority to improving weather forecasting models. Harris provides HyperCube™, a high-performance, cost-effective solution.

HyperCube™ is designed to measure vertical profiles of temperature and moisture, and the speed, direction, and elevation of winds in the atmosphere. Being a Fourier transform spectrometer, the HyperCube™ is much smaller, less expensive, and easier to implement than complex LiDAR wind measurement programs.
