New LAP3000 Wind Profiler at Hong Kong International Airport
In 1995, Hong Kong International Airport was one of the first airports to operate a LAP®3000 and to benefit from radar wind profiler data for air traffic safety. Now Hong Kong Observatory has completely upgraded one of its existing LAP®3000 systems with the latest technology including a larger antenna aperture, advanced digital data processing and extensive system monitoring. The profiler has an integrated radio-acoustic sounding system (RASS) for temperature measurements. Vertical profiles of wind and temperature are used to guarantee safe air traffic operations in all weather conditions.
