Because it was designed for fire management professionals, the Quick Deploy is not like any other portable weather station. It's exceptionally durable—no plastic components—so it can take a beating. We also designed it to be extremely simple to set up quickly and get working every time without any training, since we ship it preconfigured to your specifications and it doesn't require a laptop or alignment of a GOES / Meteosat antenna.
A Quick Deploy portable RAWS automates collection and maximizes the safety of fire crews during wildfires or controlled burns. Having accurate weather conditions in a micro-climate scale in real-time is the single most significant tool for a successful burn. Equipped with AirTalk radio voice communications, fire crews are afforded on-demand information and alerts for real-time decision-making, without needing to go to the station. And since a QD allows for an increased volume of fuels to be burned safely, it can pay for itself very quickly.
