Mini-METCOM has been designed for aerodromes that do not require the full functionality that is incorporated into METCOM. Whilst still meeting all ICAO and WMO regulations and the requirements for CAP670 and CAP746 Mini-METCOM is a streamlined, more compact package that is very simple to use. It has proven itself to be perfect for deployment at smaller airports because of its simplicity and low cost.
Mini-METCOM provides up to the minute information about your meteorological parameters, produces METARs and SPECIs, can be integrated with other existing 3rd party systems such as IRVR or wind and can be configured to communicate with the AFTN network.
Mini-METCOM has the facility for automatic measurement of the following parameters:
- Wind speed and direction (Mechanical or Ultrasonic)
- Air temperature
- Derived dew point
- Barometric pressure
The following parameters are entered manually to produce METAR and SPECI reports:
- Visibility (MOR)
- Present weather
- Runway Visual Range (RVR)
- ATIS remarks
Mini-Metcom is fully supported by the Airports software development team and comprehensive upgrade and maintenance packages to meet changing CAA regulations are available. For full details, please see the Services section.
