Meteorlogix Weather Forecasting System For Mn/DOT
Minneapolis-based Meteorlogix has received a contract to provide the Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) access to weather data delivered via satellite and Internet. Three upgrades to the Mn/DOT Minnesota weather access system (MnWAS) provided by Meteorlogix will help aviation pilots reduce the risks of flying in potentially dangerous weather conditions.
One of the upgrades Meteorlogix will provide is the MxVision AviationSentry weather briefing system for pilots. The MxVision AviationSentry weather system provides storm tracking capabilities, cloud top data and weather watch/warning/advisory information. The system continually receives real-time weather data via satellite, including regional and local radar, weather satellite photos and aviation-specific forecast maps.
