Join us for an in-depth look at WindCube Scan Airport Edition.
The next generation WindCube® Scan Airport Edition gives air traffic controllers, pilots, meteorological observers, and forecasters best-in class data to understand the current wind conditions and make better operational decisions.
WindCube Scan Airport Edition raises the bar for detecting windshear and impending severe weather events under the most extreme conditions, delivering industry-leading measurement and actionable intelligence for safe takeoffs and landings.
With its breakthrough measurement range of up to 18.9km, additional scanning modes and compact, robust design coupled with an industry leading maintenance and servicing package, WindCube Scan Airport Edition is an unattended solution ideally suited for any airport environment.
Robust, long-lasting components greatly reduce total cost of ownership, while the advanced scanning head design minimizes maintenance and reduces disruptions. An industry leading warranty and maintenance package are included as standard plus a simple, hassle free, annually renewable service contract.
Get a clear picture of the entire wind field and increase your situational awareness with new 3D volume scans, and use segment scans to scan along a glide path for safer landings. Improved laser design captures the wind field with improved data quality. One system lets you reliably capture wind vortices and windshear events thanks to increased resolution configurability.
Expand to extreme environments with temperatures ranging from -40° C up to +55° C and operate in areas requiring water and dust resistance. Stay ahead of humidity and frost through an effective heated lens.
