Airport Weather Systems
AGI airport weather systems are designed to provide the highest possible accuracy and reliability, and our AWOS, Ultrasonic Surface Wind and RVR systems can be configured to meet bespoke requirements that match military operational conditions. Often our military clients (which include the UK RAF) prefer a turn-key approach, and AGI provides a fast-turnaround support package that includes scheduled maintenance and calibration services.
Representative surface wind data is necessary to maintain safe operating procedures and to help with runway selection. The AGI airport system uses state-of-the-art ultrasonic anemometers to provide accurate, immediately available surface wind information.
Runway Visual Range (RVR) is defined as the distance over which the pilot of an aircraft on the centreline of a runway can see the runway surface markings or the lights delineating the runway or identifying its centre line. Because it is not possible to measure RVR directly, instrumented RVR (IRVR) systems are used to provide an assessment of RVR to be used in determining airport operating conditions.
AGI civil airport weather systems meet or exceed all international ICAO and WMO standards for airport meteorology. Our AWOS, Ultrasonic Surface Wind and RVR systems are all scalable to bespoke requirements, from a simple airstrip up to and including a CATIII international airport.
AGI systems operate at every major UK airport and also at airports across Europe and Asia.
