Airport Weather Advisor® turns data into actionable advice


When we initially designed the Airport Weather Advisor® system, our goal was to produce an accurate and reliable automated method for reporting aviation meteorological conditions 24 hours a day. More than 25 years and hundreds of airport installations later, we’ve more than achieved that goal.

Using what we know to make accurate weather reports

In addition to quality and reliability, what sets Airport Weather Advisor® (AWA) apart from our competition is our time-tested software algorithms. AWA’s years of operation in all types of weather conditions has allowed us to fine-tune the algorithms to generate accurate METAR, SPECI, SYNOP and other standardized reports in extraordinary conditions. Here are a few of the key features of AWA:


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.
