Topic: Purchase Calypso wired standard anemometer so a driver can be implemented.

Proposal type: Hardware [ x] , Software [ ] , Other [ ] : _________________

Description:
https://calypsoinstruments.com/shop/product/ultrasonic-wired-standard-81

This is a compact and relatively cheap ultrasonic anemometer that will provide much more accurate readings than the existing wind-vane types currently supported by rover. I have been in contact with the manufacture and obtained a 25% discount.

Planned amount $$ (USD): (247.31 euro) ~ = $277.24

Estimated time for completion: Need for second half of GSoC project (mid June), but the sooner the better.
