Military meteorological sensor MAWS6056B

The meteorological sensor MAWS6056B is a powerfull instrument measuring the weather conditions. This intelligent and sturdy device used for ballistic correction measures in a permanent way :

  • the wind speed
  • the wind direction
  • the ambiant temperature
  • the atmospheric pressure

The high precision weather sensor MAWS6056B answers quickly the variations of wind and measures from the slightest breath. The measurements provided by the weather sensor are transmitted by a serial link RS-485 (or MilCAN bus on request) to the MBT fire control system (or other). This weather sensor supports without any problem shocks and vibrations. It does not requiring any particular maintenance.

As an option, this weather sensor can be equiped with our digital ammunition storage temperature sensor (TEMPEX). It is robust, compact, automatic and without any moving parts.

The weather sensor MAWS6056B belongs to the series of Military Automatic Weather Sensor (MAWS) 6056. The  sensors series 6056 are the outcome of more than 20 years of experience and research, whose principle of operation demonstrated its reliability and its performances on armoured vehicles worldwide.
