AviMet® Windshear Alert System

Vaisala AviMet® Windshear Alert System increases safety and comfort during take-off and landing, when crucial information about unpredictable changes in wind speed and direction is delivered in a timely and consistent manner. The solution decreases the burden on air traffic controllers by informing them immediately when and where windshear occurs and when the threat is over. The solution increases air traffic controllers’ decision-making confidence as decisions are based on facts, allowing them to issue timely and reliable advance warnings to pilots.

Key Benefits

Efficient solution for high-risk situations
The leading windshear alert system that combines the benefits of all key windshear detection technologies; anemometers, wind LIDAR’s, and Doppler Weather Radar. Vaisala windshear alert system uses proven wind shear methodologies and algorithms that are widely used at international airports.
Situational awareness extended outside of the immediate airport area
With remote sensing capabilities of Doppler Weather Radar and wind LIDAR’s the weather awareness beyond the immediate vicinity of the airport can be expanded. In addition to windshear detection and alerting applications these remote sensing systems can be used for other types of severe weather detection, wind studies, and safeguarding of runway and ramp operations.
Optimal solution to fit specific conditions of the airport
Every delivered Vaisala windshear system is designed for the specific conditions of an airport using standard and proven Vaisala weather system components. Experienced and competent Vaisala aviation weather professional performs a site assessment and survey to determine which kind of windshear detection system is most applicable to the airport in question.
