Automated Weather Observing Station
Drishti - Automatic weather measuring system (D-AWMS) is an indigenously developed another mandatory equipment for Airport operations which gives real time data of weather parameters like Wind Speed, Wind Direction, Temperature, Humidity and Pressure. DAWMS consists of all the above mentioned weather sensors, Signal and data processing units along with communication systems.
The sensors are mounted on a unique flexible and frangible Mast of 6 or 10 meters aiding easy maintenance of the sensors. The software is developed in Real Time & FPGA platform to give accurate weather information for the safe landing and takeoff operations at Airports.
The data is processed in engineering units and is published as per International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) & World Meteorological Organization (WMO) requirements.
