AWOS Live real-time web display We also offer backup AWOS using our FAA certified system configurations that meet the FAA’s requirements for backup weather equipment.
Mesotech’s ICAO/WMO compliant Airport Weather Advisor® systems use the same time-tested hardware and software as our FAA certified and military systems. Sensors may be placed in an unlimited number of locations around the airport or airfield to collect the right data from the right places. For example, wind sensors and visibility sensors are commonly placed at multiple locations along a runway.
ADDITIONAL FEATURES INCLUDE:
‣ Customized communication options including spread spectrum or UHF data radios and 4G data transmission
‣ Standard and custom data output formats for integration into regional and national data networks
‣ Runway Visual Range (RVR) reporting using forward scatter visibility sensors
‣ Automatic runway light intensity monitoring (RLIM) for Runway Visual Range (RVR) calculations
‣ Automatic active runway heading detection for producing accurate automated reports based on the most relevant sensors on the airfield
Airport Weather Advisor® has been in use by the US Air Force since 2001 and Mesotech’s military aviation weather systems are the most robust, high availability systems on the market. They are tailored to the specific application and maximize availability and minimize mean time to repair. We offer engineering, logistics support, and helpdesk support to keep mission critical systems up and running.
SOME AVAILABLE OPTIONS INCLUDE:
‣ Triple redundant barometric pressure/altimeter sensors
‣ Cybersecurity and physical security hardening
‣ Redundant power supplies and data collection units
‣ Redundant communication paths (wire, optical fiber, wireless)
‣ Extreme operating conditions/environmental options
‣ Extended run-time uninterruptible power supplies
