[aprssig] Autonomous EMCOMM Telemetry

Of course not, but looking them over can provide inspiration. ;-)
That Bosch module looks VERY interesting!
I imagine self-contained APRS fly-away kits that local RACES/ARES builds up and trains fire department teams to deploy for reported gas leaks!
The FD keeps the inventory (and deploys it "inside of the yellow tape") and the Ham Radio community maintains them *and* establishes the infrastructure to route the data that they collect to the FD's own command center.
What a tight and valued connection to the Emergency First Responding community this would build!

 I don't think I'd want to use any of the electronics from a 1995 design.  You could do it smaller, cheaper, and with less power today.  Bosch Sensortec's new pressure/humidity/temperature/gas sensors measure 3 x 3 x 1 millimeters.  I'm thinking about using those in the next version of the ADS-WS1.

   SNOW POLES, were APRS sensor package in large PVC pipe dropped out of Ch47 helos in Bosnia in 1995.

   Has anyone come up with an APRS-based environmental telemetry sensor for EMCOMM use? 
  Specifically...having a "sensor/APRS kit" that one could drop-or-deploy into a theater and let it beacon back telemetry that would be of use to emergency first and second responders. 
  Examples:    
   - Wind speed, wind direction, temperature, humidity ... for chemical spills or forest fires
   - Water level ... to help manage flooding
   - Air transparency ... to help manage air pollution
 
  Either drop-and-forget (like around a forest fire) or purposefully deploy (like, ahead of a flooding event)...but with the expressed purpose of providing valued telemetry of known quality. 
  Anything?
