The ARCASONDE® 3 was a general purpose telemetry package designed to send back data during the flight of an ARCAS sounding rocket (NASM Catalogue #19660589000). It had instrumentation capable of transmitting atmospheric temperature, wind and pressure data. This commercial unit was donated to the Smithsonian Institution by Atlantic Research Corporation of Alexandria Virginia in 1966. Atlantic, the manufacturer, supplied ARCAS systems to the Air Force and to Langley as early as 1958. This eaxmple was displayed by the U.S. Information Agency in the late 1960s and in the NASM Satellites gallery in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
