The operations were in loose coordination with the Verification of Rotation in Tornadoes Experiment (VORTEX), which involved a fleet of instrumented vehicles, mobile balloon launchers, and mobile surface and airborne radars. This assemblage was mobilized to intercept tornadic storms in the broad region from southern Kansas to northern Texas. The T-28, however, restricted its activities to within approximately 50 miles of the radar at Cimarron, Ok.
The standard package of instruments provided for the determination of temperature, vertical wind, electric fields, water content, etc. The T-28 carried a PMS 2D-P optical probe.
