Especially in the cold and wet season, it is vital that operational decisions can be made and implemented within a few seconds. This is especially true for meteorological data evaluations for aviation and road traffic. With the WS100, sensor manufacturer Lufft developed a radar precipitation sensor detecting precipitation types and intensities quickly, reliably and maintenance-free with a resolution of 0.01 mm.
The BTD-350 Thunderstorm Detector is a standalone sensor that reliably detects the presence of all forms of lightning to a range of 83km.
The unique quasi electrostatic operating principle gives the detector a very low false alarm rate and the ability to warn of the risk of overhead lightning.
Minneapolis, (October 9, 2017) – DTN, a leading provider of information services, announced today that it has been selected by the leading provider of weather information in Ireland, Met Éireann to deliver its Aviation Modernization and Automation Project (AMAP).
Through the project, Met Éireann is implementing the DTN MetConsole® Aviation Weather Suite, an industry-leading platform that will enable automated weather observing systems (AWOS) at five of the main airports in Ireland, including Dublin Airport. MetConsole® will be the backbone of the AMAP system, a nationwide project to modernize the entire aviation meteorological observation infrastructure and will allow for the future development of fully automated observations at some airports.
