RVR, visibility and present weather all-in-one. Measures visibility up to 75 km.
Minimal look-down geometry
The second is "head-down" design of the optical heads, which protects them against virtually all windblown particles (even those flying horizontally).
Four main design features (e.g.an optical path clearance monitoring circuitry) are combined in the FS11P to ensure reliable operation in the harshest weather.
Located well over 4 km above sea level, Daocheng Yading Airport in China constitutes the highest civil airport in the world. With Vaisala’s high...
