15 New Jersey Airports To Get Upgraded Weather Sensors

Belfort Instrument Inks AWOS Contract With Regional Planning Commission

The New Jersey Department of Transportation will upgrade Automated Weather Observation Systems (AWOS) under a contract announced Sunday by Belfort Instrument Company. The company will supply and install 15 DigiWx at airports around the state for the New Jersey Department of Transportation, Division of Aeronautics (NJDOT).

The Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC), Philadelphia, PA was selected by NJDOT to administer the selection process, the installation, and certify completion of all 15 AWOS units. The Belfort DigiWx AWOS will report wind speed, wind direction, wind gusts, altimeter, temperature, relative humidity, dew point, density altitude, and visibility and condensation altitude.  The real-time weather will be reported directly to the pilot over a discrete frequency VHF transmitter.  The DigiWx also has, as standard, a graphic display for preflight planning.   All of the weather reporting from the DigiWx stations will be available on the Internet as well.

The 15 airports selected to receive the DigiWx AWOS are:  Alexandria Airport (N85), Blairstown Airport (1N7), Central New Jersey Regional Airport (47N), Cross Keys Airport (17N), Flying W Airport (N14), Greenwood Lake Airport (4N1), Hammonton Municipal Airport (N81), Lakewood Airport (N12), Lincoln Park Airport (N07), Old Bridge Airport (3N6), Princeton Airport (39N), Sky Manor Airport (N40), Solberg-Hunterdon Airport (N51), Spitfire Aerodrome (7N7), Trenton-Robbinsville Airport (N87).
