ISO/TC 45/SC 4是制定该项标准的技术委员会，其秘书处设在荷兰帝斯曼。马来西亚成员兼项目负责人Deng Yizhi先生说：“到目前为止，参与生产和经销气球的组织仍然不得不依靠公司制定的标准和各种国家技术要求来管理产品质量，这使得其在国际市场上很难统一地证明产品质量。”
Take me higher – a new standard for weather balloons just published
As worldwide research into weather patterns and natural disasters rises, so too does the use of meteorological balloons. Increasing global trade and demand for balloons that provide accurate data requires an international approach. A new ISO International Standard has just been published to take them to the next level.
Meteorological – or weather – balloons are designed to measure weather conditions by carrying atmospheric measurement instruments to higher altitudes, thus playing an important role in not just forecasting the weather, but predicting natural disasters and advancing scientific research in this area.
A new International Standard, ISO 17717 Meteorological balloon – Specification has just been published, outlining the minimum requirements for their production as well as test methods to ensure quality, reliability and durability.
Mr Deng Yizhi, project leader and member of ISO/TC 45/SC 4, the technical committee that developed the standard, whose secretariat is held by DSM, ISO’s member for Malaysia said: “Organizations involved in the production and distribution of weather balloons have, up until now, had to rely on company-developed standards and various types of national technical requirements to manage product quality, making it complicated to demonstrate quality levels when dealing with the international market.
“ISO 17717 will help to harmonize current standards in the area, as well as ensure overall quality, while providing a platform to enable more advanced technology to flourish.”
