Choosing an AWOS
Choosing the right Automated Weather Observing System (AWOS) vendor is key to the success of your AWOS installation. The most important factors aren’t in your requirements document. Here’s what sets Mesotech apart:
We supply aviation grade sensors to meet the accuracy and reliability needs of airports. Our AWOS systems support the following sensors by default and additional types of sensors can be added if needed.
System architecture and software
The Airport Weather Advisor® system is composed of three main hardware components: the sensors, an outdoor data collection platform (DCP), and an indoor central processing station (CPS). Because each system is custom-built for the individual airport, you can add components and sensor groupings to increase the system’s overall coverage and effectiveness to suit the unique demands of your airport.
Our Airport Weather Advisor® software, currently in its eighth-generation, includes a web application that allows you to view data and diagnostic details, augment reports, and administer the system from a regular web browser. AWA can provide up-to-the-minute data to ATC, observers, airport management, maintainers, and the wider community without installing specialized workstations.
The modular design of Airport Weather Advisor® fully satisfies the features and functions of all levels of AWOS, and allows you to select only the components you need or expand services in the future. Additionally, the advanced Virtual Station Technology™ allows you to combine data sources from different aerodrome locations into complete reports.
Every Airport is Unique
AWOS systems may have similar sensors, but every installation has unique challenges and requirements. We respond quickly changing requirements. Software changes take days, not months. Here are some examples of challenges Mesotech will help you overcome:
