Meisei Electric

Meisei Electric

MEISEI ELECTRIC was originally founded in 1938 as a radiosonde manufacturer. We developed our technologies for sensing weather and communicating the obtained data from upper air to ground, providing a variety of products and services in the fields of weather and disaster prevention.

MEISEI has also participated in space development since it first started in Japan. We have a track record in the fields of space exploration and defense, including devices for air traffic control and defense. The data collected in space can help carve out new paths for the future, such as activities conducted away from the Earth. We feel a sense of ambition in our work to look over people’s lives and contribute to social development.

People around the world are now discussing a sustainable society. For a society to be sustainable, it must have nature and technology are in harmony. This means that such society will not destroy the beautiful environment of the Earth, it will protect our limited resources, and it will realize a peaceful and affluent life for future generations.

Japan continues to experience strong winds, heavy rain and floods. There is a growing need to prepare for natural disasters, including big earthquakes. We can also see cases of large-scale forest fires around the world. Many people have felt distress on seeing picture burning down the whole all. At MEISEI, we seek to explore ways to prevent cases like these by combining information gathered from space with data on the groundwater level. To this end, we engage in initiatives as part of our mission in sensing and communication.

We will take our efforts one stepfurther based on Project Change initiative launched by the IHI Group, which aims to realize an economies in which nature and technology are in harmony. Through an integration between IHI and MEISEI ELECTRIC, we will bolster our business foundations and consider ways to create new business with disaster prevention and mitigation solutions, as well as air transport and space utilization solutions.

Each us shares a sense of ambition in our work to watch over people’s lives around the world and to contribute to social development. With our core technology in sensing and communication, we will work earnestly to realize an economies in which nature and technology are in harmony.

GPS radiosonde is an Upper-air sounding instrument to measure various types of meteorological data; wind speed, wind direction, pressure, temperature and humidity. Wind speed, wind direction and pressure are calculated from the travel speed and altitude obtained by GPS positioning techniques. Every 1 second measured data are transmitted to ground receiving system via 400-406 MHz band.

Compact and commonly-used devices are aggressively adopted in iMS-100 to achieve downsizing (just only 38 g including one battery) and its cost reduction. iMS-100 also serves for total operation cost saving by using smaller balloon and reducing the gas amount depending on the target height. Furthermore, the lightweight package greatly enhances safety in the sounding operation even without parachute when it accidently falls down on land, especially.

Improved sensor boom achieves higher accuracy in temperature measurement. Also, newly developed high response humidity sensor enables more accurate humidity measurement even in low temperature environment (below –40?). In addition to the advantages of cost and safety, the innovative downsizing can minimize pendulum motions and heat contamination from the sonde itself during launch, which improves the measurement performances in terms of wind and temperature.
