With the Nov. 4 Global Reporting Format (GRF) deadline fast approaching, airport leadership teams have compliance on their mind. And they should — this is a fundamental regulatory change from ICAO that changes airport runway condition reporting and safety obligations.
And, yes, Vaisala will help you quickly and easily achieve GRF compliance according to ICAO rules about runway reports and safety. This is the solution.
But addressing GRF is a much greater opportunity, not just a compliance hurdle. With one technological upgrade, almost any airport on the planet can:
We’ve collected some of our best GRF resources into one checklist with the goal of helping you comfortably meet the new runway condition reporting requirements — and plan for better, more efficient, safer, less disrupted airport operations.
This webinar features industry experts who explain how you can turn the new framework from a regulatory burden into an opportunity for your organization.
Built on our proprietary Vaisala Mobile Detector MD30 sensor and Vaisala RoadAI technology, the Reporter performs up to 40 surface-state measurements per second. It measures a wide range of direct measurement parameters including frost, ice, snow, slush, and water coverage. This information lets decision-makers know what contaminants, and how much of them, is on the entire runway — dramatically improving decision-making, objectivity, and awareness.
If you read the above resources, you saw that the Mobile GRF/TALPA Reporter enables an upgraded digital ecosystem for your airport, better winter weather practices, and accurate, objective runway conditions reporting in ICAO-compliant GRF format.
Next step? Turn the opportunity into action. Vaisala has been doing this for 80+ years, leading the industry in its scientific development — so we’re ready for GRF and we’re ready for you.
