Obtaining data to analyze the meteorological impact on aviation


Applications for Aeronautics

Aircraft landing and take-off is one of the most critical moments that occur at airports and heliports.

Depending on the category of the runway and the service of the airfield or heliport, different types of meteorological aids are required to be installed. In addition to this, software systems process the information and transmit it to the aircraft according to international and national regulations.
