Climatronics Introduces Updated Tactical Weather Station For UAV Ground Control Systems.

BOHEMIA, N.Y., Feb. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Climatronics Corporation now offers an improved, tactical weather station, the EMI-hardened TACMET II (P/N 102304), to provide real-time surface weather input for UAV ground control stations (GCS). This rapidly deployable, compact, self-contained weather station typically mounts on a mast or tripod on or near the GCS and includes an internal flux gate compass to automatically align the wind direction data to North. The system requires extremely low power and can be operated from a wide variety of AC or DC power sources. Its compact size does not compete for storage or deployment space.


The digital output is easily integrated into almost any existing or planned data and display system application. Climatronics offers our WeatherView(TM) and AWeather(TM) software packages for real-time data display and analysis. WeatherView(TM) and AWeather(TM) run on either a laptop or PDA.

Climatronics' TACMET II has been the weather station of choice for UAV ground control systems used by the US military. Several additional programs have selected the TACMET II for their local weather data requirements and will be fielding them in 2009.

Climatronics is a leading manufacturer of weather sensors and systems specializing in turn-key system integration and custom application.
