In the May 2021, Achelis handed over its project for the supply and installation of an Automated Weather Observation System (AWOS) incl. an Automatic Terminal Information Service system (ATIS) for Rwanda Airports Company for the airport in Kamembe. The equipment was manufactured by our partners VAISALA, Finland and STR Speechtech, Canada.
The installed equipment shown in the attached pictures are located next to the airstrip of Kamembe airport. They measure weather information like wind speed, temperature etc. This information will then be converted into speech and broadcasted to aircrafts by the ATIS system which is located directly at Kamembe airport tower.
