Canadian Forces Weather Service (CFWS) Museum, Winnipeg MB
Staff, Visitors and Views - September 2003

Notes:  The CFWS Museum was constructed in 1997 and inaugurated in 1998 in the School of Meteorology building.  The photos below cover 2003, a few years after the inauguration.  Some displays are unchanged from 1998 but have different camera angles, so are repeated here.


A "Wall of Honour" was added to the Museum in 2019 and will be cross-linked from here when photos are added.  A further cross-link is placed from here to Table 8, Office Staff Photos, as some of the staff seen below were part of the
School of Meteorology in 1998.

Radiosonde package and Minisonde recorders and receivers, along with slide-rules and calculators, parachutes, various balloons and a portable theodolite.  The Ballistic Met section is an intricate facet of the Artillery units as the acquired data are all input into firing solutions.  (description credit - Brian Van Acker)


Meteorological Rockets were launched from the site at Primrose Lake, Alberta (CWIQ) to acquire high altitude weather data in support of AETE programs.  Following the termination of each rocket flight, a Radiosonde would be launched to build a data profile and complete a vertical cross-section of the atmosphere for dissemination to users.
