Abstract: WAMSR is a millimeter wave atmospheric temperature and humidity sounder that utilizes state of the art technology to enable substantial reductions in size and mass while at the same time achieve improved measurement sensitivity and accuracy. It is the first such instrument to use receivers based entirely on newly developed monolithic microwave integrated circuit technology. Sponsored by the NASA Instrument Incubator Program, HAMSR has been under development for the past 2 112 years. The first science mission takes place in Florida this summer, where HAMSR is deployed on the NASA ER-2 during the CAMEX-4 hurricane field campaign and will provide core atmospheric soundings to a number of investigators. HAMSR represents the next generation of microwave sounders.
