The Vaisala AviMet Windshear Alert System increases aviation safety and efficiency during airplane take-offs and landings. It detects and delivers crucial information about the windshear effect and its unpredictable changes in wind speed and direction in a timely manner, alerting you immediately when and where windshear occurs and when the threat is over.
The AviMet Windshear Alert System customizes and merges a combination of X-band weather radar, wind lidar, and Low Level Windshear Alert Systems (LLWAS) to gather the decision-making data airports need and deliver alerts based on this data.
