During the T-PARC data-gathering flights, the researchers released measuring probes, so-called drop probes, while flying over the typhoon. These probes were capable of measuring wind speed, water vapour, temperature and humidity directly inside the typhoon, transmitting the data in real time to all weather services via a satellite telephone connection.
