    Micro Pulse LiDAR enhances global aviation safety - Case study

    To address the need for better information about volcanic ash events, the Toulouse Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) asked Météo-France (MF), the French national meteorological service, to focus on the ash issue. MF set out to determine the best method of providing accurate information about the size and concentration of volcanic particles from the ground up to a minimum of 12 km ...

    Integrated Wake Vortex Flight Safety System

    Wake vortex turbulence is an inevitable product of aircraft’s lift. Lift is generated by high pressure below the wing and low pressure above the wing. As the high-pressure air moves around the wingtip to the low pressure, (high pressure always moves towards lower pressure areas) the air rotates, or creates a horizontal 'tornado' behind the wings. Diameter of such turbulence can reach from 8 ...
