Meteorological Monitoring Applications

  • Fire Weather Monitoring

    FTS is the world leader in environmental monitoring solutions for fire weather. FTS stations are in use by every one of the top 50 government forest management agencies in every corner of the United States and Canada. No one else dedicates as much of its research and development efforts to the needs of fire weather professionals. FTS portable and fixed-site weather stations set the standard for reliability and simplicity of operation, maintenance, and installation. As a manufacturer, we design and engineer the leading datalogger that is approved and fully supported by the NIFC Remote Sensing Fire Weather Support Unit (RSFWSU). Our G5 GOES / Meteosat transmitter is recognized as the most reliable GOES technology available, and is licensed for use by other environmental monitoring equipment manufacturers.

  • Meteo Information for Safe Operation

    In the industry segment meteo information is essential for safe operation. To deal with emergencies, accurate real-time information on wind conditions (direction and speed) is crucial. In some cases we feed this data directly into safety applications which models and predicts the progression of released gas clouds.

  • Biodiversity Monitoring

    In many sectors with large impacts on land such as mining, oil & gas, and construction, it is common for sustainability leaders to assert that they will have ‘no net loss’, or a ‘net positive impact’ on biodiversity. These promises regarding organizational biodiversity performance are proving extremely difficult to test. Our Ecosystem and the Normative Biodiversity Metric give sustainability leaders a chance to measure, analyze and communicate the success of these promises.

  • Aviation Meteorology

    SWS and VPF sensors are used in airports throughout the world as part of aviation ground control and meteorological monitoring systems. Our visibility and ambient light sensors form the core of Runway Visual Range monitoring systems used to control the safe landing of aircraft in reduced visibility conditions. Our present weather sensors provide automated precipitation classification and monitoring that forms a vital part of the METAR signals broadcast to aircraft in the airport vicinity. The detection and reporting of thunderstorms is important in the aviation industry supporting both the safety of ground operations and the provision of meteorological data to aircraft and forecasting authorities. Our BTD-300 Thunderstorm Detector has been developed to be compliant with FAA regulations for lightning detection systems used at airfields.

  • Noise monitoring for airports

    Airports, small and large, use noise and operations monitoring systems to reduce the noise of flight operations in the surrounding community.  Noise monitoring is generally used to evaluate noise abatement programs and to develop aircraft departure and arrival procedures that minimize the impact of aircraft noise based upon altitude, flight path, and time of day.  Noise monitoring is linked with radar tracking so that specific aircraft can be identified when noise limits are exceeded and so operational requirements can be enforced.
    Larson Davis provides noise monitoring systems to airports, consultants, and system integrators with the technology and support to make a successful program.

  • Weather Monitoring Systems for industrial and utility sector

    The weather can have a major impact on many industrial processes and operations, both from an operational efficiency and/or safety standpoint. For example, real-time information about ambient atmospheric conditions provides the necessary input data required to make the proper decisions during an industrial emergency involving any type of hazardous material. Depending on the plant type, size and age, the federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as well as municipal and state environmental regulatory organizations, also require that a number of basic meteorological variables are measured and recorded on site to ensure compliance with environmental regulations.

  • Prescribed Burning

    A general understanding of the separate and combined effects of several weather elements on fire behavior is needed to plan and execute a good prescribed burn. Because weather and fuel factors interact, an experienced prescribed burner can conduct a successful burn even with one or more factors slightly outside the desired range—as long as they are offset by other factors. Accurate fire weather monitoring of fire danger indices via the RAWS network, providing historical data leading up to a prescribed burn is critical in the planning stages. However, having accurate weather conditions in a micro-climate scale in real time during the execution of a prescribed burn is just as critical. The weather variables most applicable to prescription burns are air temperature, relative humidity, wind direction, wind speed and precipitation. A combination of wind speed, relative humidity, temperature, and solar insulation largely determines fuel condition which in turn affects fire behavior.

  • Continuous Instream Monitoring

    Turbidity in natural waters is recognized as an important indicator of its environmental health, and because it's a good surrogate for suspended sediment, monitoring turbidity has always been the "holy grail" for hydrologists. But because of earlier technology, "turbidity" has traditionally been a "bad word". The DTS-12 turbidity sensor is the first sensor to make turbidity monitoring practical, and no longer difficult, inaccurate, expensive, or labor-intensive. Turbidity is the cloudiness or murkiness of water caused by suspended organic or inorganic materials. Turbidity in natural waters is recognized as an important indicator of its environmental health.

    Large pipes & ducts, hot tapping, purging flow solutions

    The measurement of gas flow in large ducts or pipes offers its own set of challenges. Large ducts and pipes often have swirls or turbulence in them which makes measurement of true gas flow difficult. Sierra has developed a number of solutions to this vexing problem, including stand-alone flow conditioning elements and multiple arrays of thermal sensors. By including hot taps and purging systems, such arrays can be very flexible.
