WIND SHEAR ALERT SYSTEM

Sudden change in wind velocity and the direction of the wind is the wind shear condition that can cause many risks for aircraft, for the runways wind. If the wind shear is not detected then the aircraft can be posing to hazard. For the prediction of wind shear with a notifying system we provide different anemometers that alert the sudden change in wind speed and direction over the control of wind shear. Our different communication systems are providing real-time data to view and control wind shear.

Wind-shear activity is a key factor in determining the relative accident risk at each airport. Hazardous wind shear comes primarily from microbursts that are caused by strong downdrafts in thunderstorms. The generated outflows typically range from 15 to 45 knots but have been known to exceed 100 knots. An aircraft crossing a microburst, with its changing wind direction and shifting wind speeds, can induce a severe reduction in the lift for the aircraft very near the ground.

One of the key factors in estimating the benefits of a termi­nal wind-shear detection system is its performance. Thus, it is necessary to quantify the wind-shear detection effec­tiveness for each sensor, preferably on an airport-by-air­port basis. To consider sensors that are not yet deployed, models must be developed that take into account the vari­ous effects that factor into the detection probability.

Components of Weather Station for the Wind Shear Alert System:

Anemometer– Measures wind direction and speed.

Thermometer – Measures atmospheric temperature.

Barometer – Measures atmospheric pressure to predict precipitation

Rain Gauge – Measures liquid precipitation using an open container. They usually empty automatically and measure the amount of rainfall over a given time
