Micro Weather Station

Micro Weather Station

The Portable Micro Weather Station features robust construction and autonomous design with easy installation and maintenance free operation. Designed for smaller airports, remote heliports and tactical aviation operations, the Portable Micro Weather Station provides a variety of real time weather reporting conditions including cloud height measurement via the world’s smallest integrated LIDAR ceilometer within a compact and wireless weather sensor product. With 28 different environmental monitoring parameters, key reporting variables include: temperature, barometric pressure, wind speed/direction, lighting distance/frequency, visibility measurements, precipitation amounts, visual imagery and cloud heights up to 10,000 feet within 10% accuracy.

With a built-in cellular LTE-M wireless modem, cloud based data logging allows users real time access to environmental data at any time from any location. The self-contained Micro Weather Stations weigh 3.8 pounds with internal rechargeable batteries powered by a self-contained solar array ensuring sustained operations without the need for external power. The battery pack provides up to 7 days autonomy in the event of little to no solar charging. The Portable Micro Weather Stations are industry’s most compact, reliable and robust solution for airports and heliports that require environmental data delivered accurately and reliably without the financial investment of an AWOS system.
