The Indian Navy (IN) has inaugurated the first of nine Integrated Automatic Aviation Meteorological System (IAAMS) installations, mainly using technology from Vaisala, under a contract worth an undisclosed amount.

Indian Naval Station Rajali near Chennai is the launch site, and it will serve as a testbed for future IAAMS deployments as the IN seeks to replace manual meteorological observations with automated real-time measurements with a suite of sensors.

IAAMS installations at the other eight bases will be undertaken by New Delhi-based SGS Weather and Environmental Systems, with completion scheduled for March 2019.

Jane's understands that data from IAAMS will also benefit three civilian airports - Goa, Port Blair, and Visakhapatnam - as well as the Indian naval bases. Data will be shared free of charge by the IN.

The IAAMS includes a radar vertical wind profiler, transmissometer, ceilometer, and Automatic Weather Observation System (AWOS) from Vaisala. An alarm feature alerts duty staff during an "abnormal change of weather parameters that may affect safe flying operations", according to a statement from the navy.
