FAA-certified Automated Weather Observation Systems
Ten years ago OSI expanded from simply producing weather
sensors to building modular AWOS Systems.(MAWOS).
are now proud to offer AWOS AV, fully certified by the
Federal Aviation Administration.

OSI AWOS AV™ system is a fully automated aviation weather
observing and reporting system designed to support airborne and
ground users. This FAA-certfied AWOS is equipped with dual-pressure
sensors and visibility sensors for determining official altimeter
settings, visibility, and reporting via FCC-licensed UHF data radio,
Internet, land line or cell phones.
A basic OSI AWOS AV™ system consists of:
FAA-approved barometric pressure sensors
FAA-approved visibility sensor.
It can be enhanced with:
Wind speed/direction sensor

A full OSI AWOS AV™ system calculates the altimeter setting, density
altitude, condensation altitude, dew point - and can report the
prevailing and gust wind components for pre-programmed runway
With OSI AV software and a Digital Data Receiver
(DDR), tower weather telemetry and any NOTAMs are communicated by
audio on a pilot-activated VHF frequency or an Endless Loop
Dedicated Frequency (ELDF) on a specified VHF frequency; or by
viewing the operator's terminal display in the FBO location, Internet and dialup
voice modem options allow remote user access from anywhere on earth.

Automated Weather Observation Systems (MAWOS)
After almost thirty years of developing weather
sensors - we now offer complete integrated weather stations. Long
a favorite with NWS, WMO, system integrators and meteorological
departments around the world, OSI’s OWI-432 optical present weather &
visibility sensor is now a key sensor
in our Modular Automated Weather Observation Systems.
sensors now have expanded processing power to handle added sensor
inputs, and enhanced communications options for network, cell
phone, and VHF interface,
MAWOS is available in FAA II P / III P
