Abstract: An account of the work done at the Institute towards the development of a meteorological rocket payload to measure the temperature and wind in the altitude range 70-20 km is presented. Circuit details, data deduction and its accuracy using microbead thermistor as sensor are described. Various temperature corrections due to aerodynamic heating, solar radiation, long-wave radiation, conduction along the support posts and thermistor time constant are theoretically calculated and discussed for the above mentioned altitude range. The use of thermistor mounts and their contribution towards the decrease of time constant of the sensor is discussed. The design and fabrication aspect of decelerators (parachutes) is also included.
