Real time, reliable wind profiler
Wind Watch is a new-generation wind profiler, able to provide detailed and accurate information about winds to 400 meters.
The data Wind Watch makes available on wind direction and strength at altitude provides precise real time warnings of wind shear, increasing safety and reducing expensive go-arounds.
Unlike LIDAR-based wind profilers Wind Watch is not dependent on visibility and can ‘see through’ fog and inversion layers to report on wind conditions and hazards above them.
Importantly, Wind Watch meets ICAO update rate requirements of 2 minutes and is suitable for operational meteorological use.
Wind Watch is quick and easy to deploy as either a permanent or mobile trailer-based unit.
Accurate and reliable atmospheric structure monitoring
Sky Watch provides an accurate profile of atmospheric structure up to an altitude of 800 meters.
Real-time information about the atmosphere is particularly important in maintaining safety, as inversion layers can result in long-lived wake turbulence at or about the height of the inversion.
Sky Watch, when used in conjunction with Wake Watch, can provide a very reliable predictor of wake behaviour, and therefore advance warning of potential wake turbulence issues
Sky Watch is quick and easy to deploy and has high availability to 400 meters. Above 400 meters, availability may be reduced in different weather conditions.
