WSI Gets Sirius For In-flight Satellite Weather
WSI Corporation announced last week that it is working on a system that would receive WSI's aviation weather over Sirius Satellite Radio in your airplane cockpit. The FAA-certified system should be on the market by the end of this year, WSI said. "The reliability offered by Sirius's satellite network augments WSI's continued commitment to build a robust network of proactive flight-decision support tools," said WSI spokesman Jim Menard. Sirius radio programs will also be included. The system will be compatible with all existing WSI InFlight display devices and installations, the company said. The new system will feature a "drop-in" replacement for the current AV001 antenna and a functionally compatible receiver to the current AV100 and AV200 product lines.
