WINDEX-300 is developed in accordance with the requirements of State Standard and Sanitary Rules and Regulations and refers to safe laser products. If a dangerous wind shear is detected, the system transmits corresponding messages to all air navigation users.
The Low-Level Wind Shear Alerting System is intended to:
WINDEX-300 is capable of detecting:
Control of atmospheric stability.
Forecasting dangerous movements of air masses
Regional meteorological forecasts.
Studies of propagation of radio waves and laser radiation.
Analysis of movements of air masses for increasing the efficiency of the energy received.
Forecasting the spread of emissions from enterprises.
WINDEX-300 is certified by the Federal Agency on Technical Regulating and Metrology and has the Pattern Approval Certificate of Measuring Instruments issued by IAC. WINDEX-300 is developed in accordance with the requirements of State Standard and Sanitary Rules and Regulations. The profiler is eye-safe and this parameter is certified by the Russian Federal Service for Surveillance on Consumer Rights Protection and Human Wellbeing's submission and by the audit.
WINDEX-300 passed certification tests on the Obninsk Meteorological Tower. During the tests the WINDEX-300 measurement data were compared with anemometers installed at different tower heights and metrological characteristics on the aerodynamic tunnel of the State Special Standard of Air Velocity were examined (St. Petersburg). In addition, WINDEX-300 passed the all-season operational testing at the Pulkovo Airport (St. Petersburg).
