This model of the LAP® Series Radar Wind Profilers operates on a lower radio frequency in the 400 to 500 MHz range and achieves the highest measurement range. With its large antenna area of 28 m² and with a transmit power of 2000 W it provides wind measurements up to a height of 8 km above the ground. Multiple radio-frequency variants are available for use in different frequency allocation regions worldwide.
This RASS Extension adds the capability for measuring temperature profiles to a LAP®8000 Radar Wind Profiler.
The UPS provides backup power to a LAP®8000 Radar Wind Profiler for at least 20 minutes at full system operation.
The larger antenna aperture of this model provides the highest performance and clutter resilience that the most critical applications demand.
AWAIRE Aviation is a hardware, software and service package which is designed to provide the most complete, accurate and reliable information about upper winds and temperatures and to bring this to airport controllers, managers, meteorologists and pilots. AWAIRE Aviation uses a variety of the most advanced sensing technologies to continuously measure all relevant wind, temperature and turbulence parameters in the area of the departure and climb paths with high distance resolution, precisely and in near real-time. This includes wind speed and direction relative to the airplane as well as both, turbulence (EDR), vertical wind shear and density altitude.
