Research Institution
The U.S. Air Force Battlefield Air Operations (BAO) is seeking portable environmental observation devices that replicate the automated gathering and reporting of the same measurements currently performed by the AN/TMQ-53 for Service Level D airfield support. To address this need, ISI proposes to enhance our existing Macro Weather Sensor (MaWS) system to meet and/or exceed current AN/TMQ-53 capabilities and perform software integration to ensure a successful technology transition to the warfighter planning and mission effectiveness. ISI’s integrated MaWS system can perform weather monitoring operations both autonomously and with forecaster-in-the-loop capabilities in a very small SWAP-C format compared to the legacy tactical weather equipment. By building on the success of ISI’s Micro Weather Sensor, which is already a DoD program of record, the risk of the MaWS development and transition is substantially reduced. In Phase I, ISI demonstrated the path toward meeting BAO and USAF requirements through a comprehensive requirements and market study and by demonstrating functional hardware. In Phase II, ISI will increase the maturity level of the MaWS system by integrating additional sensing capability based on our commercial MWS® products and enhancing software integration with existing platforms to simplify data dissemination to the warfighter.
