The company was founded in 1977 with office in Sacramento California, USA ; it is ISO 9001:2008 and CMMI Level 3 Certified company. AWI is Worldwide solution provider of Meteorological sensors that meet ICAO, FAA, WMO and Canadian Specification.
Here are an example of product that AWI offered, for more detailed go to the AWI website.
Cloud Hight Ceilometer
The Model 8339 Laser Ceilometer measures cloud height and thickness, in addition to vertical visibility. Unlike other ceilometers, the Model 8339 detects up to four cloud layers simultaneously to a distance of 25,000 vertical feet. Its precision makes it ideal for applications requiring the highest level of performance and reliability, such as aviation and meteorological studies.
The Model 8340 Laser Ceilometer uses a design similar to that of the 8339 however, with the addition of a more powerful laser and state-of-the-art firmware, the Model 8340 accurately reads cloud height, density, and vertical visibility to a distance of 40,000 vertical feet.
Keeping with the proven laser technology, the Model 8340 emits a laser pulse into the atmosphere and analyses back-scatter data to determine the top and bottom altitude of each cloud. In order to maintain accuracy in even the most volatile situations, the Model 8340 applies proprietary adaptive algorithms to determine the number of returns required
The 8365 Dual Technology Visibility Sensor measures transparency of the atmosphere and calculates its extension coefficient and meteorological optical range (MOR) values. Using both direct attenuation and forward scatter technologies, the 8365 can measure airborne particle sizes once available only from a transmissometer, while having the reliability and cost-effectiveness of a forward scatter visibility sensor. Its precision makes it ideal for applications requiring the highest in performance and reliability, such as aviation and meteorological studies.
Ultrasonic Wind Sensor
The FAA certified Model 2040 Ultrasonic Wind Sensor provides the best solution on the market for reliable, accurate, and cost-effective wind speed and directional measurement. It combines the latest patented advances in ultrasonic technology, together with AWI's years of experience as the recognized world leader in all-weather sensors. The elimination of moving parts, together with a rugged stainless steel construction, means this wind sensor is virtually maintenance-free and requires no calibration on site.
Optical Rain Gauge
The AWI Model 6030 Optical Rain Gauge is a superior tool for rain measurement. The Model 6030's scintillation technology is the best method for optical measurement of rain. Falling rain causes beam intensity variations in the infrared light as it passes through the beam. These irregularities, known as scintillations, have characteristic patterns, which are detected by the sensor and converted to rain rate.
Barometric Pressure Sensor
AWI's 7150 Digital Barometer Series, was designed to provide accurate pressure measurements over a wide range of environmental temperatures and pressures. The fully compensated digital barometer is ideal for use in demanding automated weather station applications and is fully certified by the FAA.
