Micro-weather sensor for commercial aviation applications launches

0

Intellisense Systems, provider of environmental sensing solutions, introduces the MWS–C600, the third product in Intellisense’s new Commercial Series of Micro Weather Sensors (MWS).  

The C600 is aall-in-one weather sensor with processing, solar power, communications, and meteorological sensors, all integrated into a portable unit for small airstrips and heliports. 

The included lidar ceilometer, the smallest in the world, measures cloud height to 10,000 ft, giving users an additional critical parameter to support flight operations. 

The C600 transmits environmental measurements over cellular LTE-M communications to support cloud-based data logging and instant access to 28 meteorological conditions and parameters. The integrated ceilometer enables hyper-local weather monitoring for aviation applications such as heliports and small, remote, or temporary airfields that do not have the power, budget, or space for an Aviation AWOS system. 

The C600 does not need wires or external devices and collects data including temperature, barometric pressure, humidity, wind speed and direction, angular tilt, dust accumulation, lightning distance, compass reading, precipitation amount, present weather, GPS location, and cloud height.
