Sacramento, CA (January 29, 2010) - All Weather, Inc. (AWI), a leading manufacturer of weather information systems and meteorological sensors, has been selected to supply the Pago Pago International Airport with an Automated Weather Observing System (AWOS). The AWOS, developed by AWI, is an unmanned system that provides up-to-the-minute weather data to airport personnel and pilots. The AWOS will play a key role in supplying pilots with critical weather information for safer flight operations.
With the September 2009 earthquake and resulting tsunami in American Samoa there is a great need for vital infrastructure repairs and replacement. “The AWI AWOS will help provide safer air transportation to and from the region allowing for a quicker recovery and be a contributor to the essential air transport logistics for the islands,” said Barbara Baca, U.S. AWOS Sales Manger for AWI.
Included in AWI’s AWOS offering are sensors for measuring wind speed and direction, temperature, humidity, rainfall, and barometric pressure, Pago Pago will also be outfitted with AWI's Laser Ceilometer and Dual-Technology Visibility Sensor.
