Send weather data from U.S. airports to the world
An Automated Weather Observing System (AWOS) measures and collects critical weather data, broadcasts the data in voice format, and transmits the data in digital format.
For all federal U.S. airports, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA):
For non-federal U.S. airports, state, local, and private organizations can buy and maintain their own AWOS equipment; however, reaping the economic and safety benefits of transmitting the digital data to NADIN is difficult because NADIN is a closed X.25 network with carefully controlled access points.
Mackinac Software’s mission: Provide non-federal airports an economical, flexible, secure, and reliable connection between their AWOS equipment and NADIN.
Mission accomplished! Mackinac Software's anyAWOS Weather Nexus:
"The Gcom appliance allows our software to be independent of the underlying protocol, and will allow an easy transition from X.25 to IP when the time comes."
