Present weather stations on land and sea can keep only about 10 percent of the atmosphere under surveillance. Two or three weather satellites couild include a cloud inventory of the whole globe eery few hours. From this inventory meteorologists believe they could spot large storms (including hurricanes) in their early stages and chart their directions of movement with much more accuracy th at present.

There appears to be two reasons for this low figure: the AFSWP major costs were handled as part of those for operation HARD TACK, and the Explorer satellites built at the University of Iowa by Van Allen and his graduate students were very cheap.
