the market. For our customers who want the best, there is no other

continuously broadcast the most accurate, up-to-date weather and
related mission critical information to any aircraft equipped with
WSI's special purpose antenna and receiver. WSI InFlight
delivers a radar mosaic, WSI's NOWrad(R), depicting areas of
rain, snow and mixed precipitation, along with echo tops and
movement, graphical and textual surface observations (METARs) and
Terminal Area Forecasts (TAFs), plotted SIGMETs and AIRMETs direct
