Aviation Standard WindObserver 2-Axis Ultrasonic Anemometer Launched

We are pleased to announce the launch of the Gill Aviation Standard WindObserver, a 2-axis heated ultrasonic anemometer designed specifically for airport installations.

Aviation Standard WindObserver has been accepted for service by both the FAA Federal Aviation Administration (USA) and the CAA Civil Aviation Authority (UK) for the observation and reporting of surface wind.

In addition, this anemometer meets the requirements of Annex 3 to the Convention on International Civil Aviation (ICAO) when supplied as part of a suitable Automated Weather Observing System (AWOS).

Capable of monitoring wind speeds up to 70m/s and with high heating power extending the lower operating temperature to -55ºC, this anemometer is well suited to operation in the harsh operating conditions commonly experienced by automatic weather observing systems.

For more information including images, specifications and literature please visit the Aviation Standard WindObserver product page, or contact our sales team for technical advice.
