A telemetering current weather instrument system for use at airports
With the increase in air traffic and the advent of fast jet aircraft it has become necessary to provide almost continuous information on meteorological conditions prevailing over the runway complex to the Air Traffic Control. The Current Weather Instrument Panel designed and constructed at Poona meets these requirements. The instrument displays continuously pressure, temperature, humidity, rainfall, wind speed and wind direction. The sensors are installed near the runway complex where the temperature and humidity are truly representative of the surrounding environment and the data are electrically transmitted by cables to the panel kept in the control tower. The observer in the control tower has only to switch on relevant dials to obtain the information whenever required.
