PACRITEX

Pressure Acoustics Research Inside Tornadoes EXperiment

the Mission

PACRITEX is founded and developed by Meteorologist Lanny Dean. The goal is to deploy the INPAR (Probe) along with the other Scientific Probes & Drones in the path of Tornadic & Severe Storms!  

About PACRITEX

PACRITEX (Pressure Acoustics Research Inside Tornadoes EXperiment) is Founded by Meteorologist Lanny Dean. With the in-depth studies, certification, and degrees Mr. Dean carries, he engineered and created all the hardware the “INPAR” and the other Scientific Probes and Drones carry!
