Wind Shear Alert
System
A Complete Wind Observation system for
Wind Energy Assessment.

Introduction and Objective:

Wind shear is a meteorological phenomenon that occurs when wind speeds or direction change rapidly over a short distance, often in the vicinity of airports. This can cause dangerous conditions for aircraft, as it can create sudden and unpredictable changes in lift and drag on the plane. To detect and alert pilots to wind shear conditions, many airports now utilize advanced anemometer technology.

An anemometer is a device that measures wind speed and direction. Traditional anemometers are typically mounted on tall towers or poles and use mechanical or electronic sensors to measure wind data. However, recent advancements in anemometer technology have led to the development of new types of sensors that are more accurate, reliable, and cost-effective.

One of the most promising technologies in this area is the Doppler LIDAR anemometer. This device uses laser beams to measure wind speeds and directions and is able to provide real-time data that is accurate to within a few meters per second. This is especially useful for airports, as it allows them to detect wind shear conditions as they occur, and to alert pilots in a timely manner.

As a weather instrument provider, we offer various anemometer technologies to detect wind shear conditions. We provide Doppler LIDAR anemometers as well as traditional anemometers mounted on tall towers or poles and use mechanical or electronic sensors to measure wind data. Our anemometer technology provides real-time data that is accurate and reliable to ensure the safety of aircraft at airports by providing real-time wind shear detection and alert systems.

Overall, advanced anemometer technology is playing an increasingly important role in ensuring the safety of aircraft at airports by providing real-time wind shear detection and alert systems. As technology continues to improve, it is likely that these systems will become even more accurate and reliable, providing even greater protection for pilots and passengers.

Components

Anemometer– Wind speed and direction are measured by an anemometer and wind vane sensor. it helps in determining current wind speed and direction.

Thermometer – Measures atmospheric temperature. which helps in wind shear monitoring.

Barometer – Measures atmospheric pressure, which helps in predicting precipitation.

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