AMWS – Advanced Micro Weather Sensor

Product Information


The Advanced Micro Weather Sensor has an integrated ceilometers to enable it to meet key performance parameter requirements to measure cloud base height and cloud amount at a minimum of 5,000 feet AGL. The integrated ceilometers data augments in situ (“on-site”) surface weather observations supporting both aviation and ground mission operations. The AMWS integrates the ceilometer capability into a single and comprehensive Micro Weather Sensor unit, enabling several performance advantages over utilizing an auxiliary ceilometer, including significant reduction in SWaP, no extra cables, and the potential for air emplacement. POC’s new custom ceilometer is roughly 5x more power efficient than COTS LIDARs on the market today, creating a new state of the art in cloud sensing.
