The main Observer screen shows all of the meteorological data recorded by the weather monitoring equipment in the field. The Controller tower screen displays weather data optimized for air traffic controllers, only showing information critical to landing or guiding aircraft.
METAR and SPECI reports are automatically generated. Weather Observers can set up Aviation INTERCEPT® to send messages in manual, automatic, or semi-automatic mode. Manual and semi-automatic modes allow the report to be edited.
It immediately allows the user to identify any trouble areas by clicking on the diagnostic information at the lowest replaceable unit (LRU) level.
The color of the maintenance indicators represents the assessed state of each component. A red light, or Alarm, indicates that conditions exist that disqualify data from being processed.
Multiple sensor algorithms cross-check specific sensor inputs with other related sensor data to verify the output. Continuous built-in tests are also performed on the server and data collection unit. Even the weather algorithms are constantly monitored.
Aviation INTERCEPT's Top Menu Bar provides access to all system log files, graphs to view recent data trends for each sensor, the help files, and generate diagnostics.
To meet the specific data needs of scientists and researchers, Aviation INTERCEPT allows for an XML data feed of aviation weather data. This feed can be tailored to the user's exact requirements.
