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.
   - 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.
