The FTS Quick Deploy Portable Weather Station is the fire community’s most widely used weather station for prescribed burns and temporary monitoring applications. It offers the same sensors, telemetry and reliability as our full Fixed RAWS but in a portable form. It can be set up completely in 15-minutes by one person, with no tools and no technical training. Its portability means that several can be placed at the fire line and rapidly relocated as needed. It offers the same sensors and telemetry options as the Fixed RAWS, and all components are interchangeable with the Fixed Raws.
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 antenna.
A fixed site can be configured with any other digital and analog sensors required.
