Built for demanding offshore environments, Vaisala’s Helideck Monitoring System (HMS), integrated with the world's most accurate lightning data from the Vaisala Global Lightning Dataset GLD360, is raising the standard for efficient offshore helicopter and helipad operations.
Vaisala HMS delivers the most accurate and reliable weather and lightning data, helideck motion, and vessel position in real time for safe, efficient helicopter takeoffs and landings. The CAA (UK Civil Aviation Authority) certified and CAP 437 compliant helideck monitoring software includes separate pre-approach and on-deck displays, Motion Severity Index, Wind Severity Index and Relative Wind Direction parameters, and optional lightning detection data. The software can also incorporate helideck motion status repeater light signals, and can be configured for compliance with international aviation regulations (Normam-27, BSL D 5-1 and NORSOK).
The user-friendly interface empowers decision-makers with a real-time data display, reporting tools for displaying meteorological and environmental data, and critical alarms to quickly check data and helideck status from anywhere via a PC, tablet, or mobile device. You can also securely share information with other offshore stakeholders during critical weather situations.
