0

OSi’s AWS-432 MAWOS is an advanced / bestvalue Modular Automated Weather Observing System built around the OWI-432 present weather / visibility sensor. The AWS-432 MAWOS is designed for aviation applications and continuous weather reporting. The system is flexible, robust, easily installed, and extremely reliable. OSI has fielded weather sensors in every environment on the globe. OSi sensors and systems are recognized as the world leader in weather data collection. With the AWS-432 MAWOS system we offer the user a complete weather data collection and current weather condition reporting system that will operate automatically 24/7/365.

  • Modular Design
  • Based on OWI-432 Present Weather Sensor
  • Easy Installation and integration
  • Advanced scintillation technology
  • Intelligent algorithms (over 200 million hours of field data.)
  • Meets NWS, FAA, and Canadian guidelines
  • Almost no maintenance. Operates unattended 24/7/365
  • Built-in self diagnostics & testing

The OSi OWI-432 MAWOS Control Enclosure is the core of the MAWOS system and principal point of access for the user.

The Control Enclosure houses all the components for

  • Power connection and distribution
  • Interconnects between the system components
  • Dual Barometric Pressure Sensor
  • Power and Data I/O terminals
  • Single Board Microcomputer
  • Communications (VHF Radio / Ethernet / Telephone

Typical MAWOS configurations include:

  • AWOS A - Reports altimeter setting only.
  • AWOS IIP - Reports altimeter setting, density altitude, wind speed, wind direction, gusts, variable wind, temperature, dew point, visibility, and present weather.
  • AWOS IIIP - Reports altimeter setting, density altitude, wind speed, wind direction, gusts, variable wind, temperature, dew point, visibility, present weather, cloud height, and cloud coverage.

The OWI-432 WIVIS is included in all configurations (except AWOS A). This results in savings to the customer and a very cost effective means to obtain an AWOS system which reports visibility and present weather at a very affordable cost.

The AWS-432 offers a modular design. The following options are available with any configuration:

  • Multilingual voice
  • Telephone Interface
  • Cell Phone Interface
  • VHF GTA Radio
  • Ethernet Interface
  • LAN and WAN interfaces
  • Remote Display Units (RDU)

The AWS-432 graphical display is easily added to most modern PCs. All that is needed is an Ethernet connection between the MAWOS sensor site and PC. The PC then serves as the Remote Display Unit (RDU)

MAWOS is designed for continuous weather reporting in aviation applications. The system is flexible, robust, easily installed, and extremely reliable. MAWOS is designed to FAA Advisory Circular 150-5220.16D and Canadian CAR 804.01(c) AWOS specifications. Options from simple AWOS A to AWOS IIIP are offered. Automated voice broadcast is accessible on land line, cell phone (option), and VHF aviation band. Broadcast voice capability is available in both French and English.
