Chosen by the FAA in 1988 to design, develop, manufacture, and install 200 AWOS systems for installation at Federal Airports, All Weather, Inc. has become the preferred development partner of the FAA. In continuing this relationship, AWI was awarded a contract in 1999 to upgrade the existing AWOS systems. This upgrade is complete and all automated weather stations are fully functional. AWI is currently negotiating a further upgrade to the AWOS systems.
The AWOS is a completely automated weather station that provides 24-hour, real-time weather data for all types of airports. Each automated weather station includes sensors to determine visibility, cloud height, temperature, dew point, wind speed, wind direction, pressure, and precipitation integrated with a complete data collection and dissemination package. All of these systems are still in use today.
The original 200 AWOS sites were strategically selected by the FAA and cover every state in the US. Since the inception of this program, thousands of state-of-the-art AWOS systems have been successfully deployed throughout the United States and abroad.
The FAA AWOS Program was just one of many that our Program Management Team has brought to life. Involved at every level of the process from proposal to fruition, the AWI Program Management Team is experienced in government contracting and has built a reputation for exceeding our customer's expectations.
