ABSTRACT
Provides information on a study which described a version of an ultrafast aircraft resistance thermometer (UFT-F) with a time constant of the order for use in both cloudy and cloudless air. Construction of the UFT-F sensor; Laboratory testing of UFT-F; Conclusions from preliminary flight experiences with the UFT-F sensor and perspectives of its further development.
