GEORGE TOWN, GRAND CAYMAN, MARCH 12, 2018 – EEC’s TeleSpace division, in conjunction with our regional partner Aviation Communications Limited (AVCOM), continues its international dominance with this month’s competitive award of a 4.5m Capella-R GOES-16 (GOES-East) ground station. This system, coupled with EEC TeleSpace’s flagship visualization and analysis software, PROTEUS, will be installed in the next two months at the Cayman Islands National Weather Service Facility at the Owens Roberts Airport in Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands.
Meteorological equipment specialists Biral has recently announced the launch of its new visibility test plaques for wind turbine aviation obstruction lights.
Visibility sensors are frequently used on wind turbines to adjust the brightness of aviation obstruction lights. This way, the brightness of the light is reduced as the meteorological conditions improve, visibility increases and the light pollution caused to residents is greatly reduced.
These newly developed test plaques demonstrate the correct operation of the aviation obstruction lights by reproducing the required visibility in the Biral sensor and triggering the change of brightness in the obstruction lights as the visibility changes.
