Military meteorological sensor MAWS6056HCGPS

The meteorological sensor MAWS6056HCGPS is a powerfull instrument measuring the weather conditions. This intelligent and sturdy device used for ballistic correction or weather monitoring measures in a permanent way :

  • the wind speed
  • the wind direction related to magnetic North
  • the ambiant temperature
  • the atmospheric pressure
  • the relative humidity

The high precision weather sensor MAWS6056HCGPS 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-422 (or MilCAN bus on request) to the NBC suite (or other) of the vehicle. Thanks to an integrated electronic compass, the wind direction is always indicated related to magnetic North. A GPS receiver combine the geographical coordinates from the place of measures with the weather data's.

This weather sensor supports without any problem shocks and vibrations. It does not require any particular maintenance.

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

The weather sensor MAWS6056HCGPS belongs to the series of Military Automatic Weather Sensor (MAWS) 6056. The sensors 6056 are the outcome of more than 20 years of experience aend research, whose principle of operation demonstrated its reliability and its performances on armoured and NBC vehicles worldwide.
