Meteorological measurements at Airport are crucial for safe landing and take-off of aircrafts. Precise measurement of Visibility, Pressure, Wind speed and Direction, Temperature, Humidity, Precipitation are some of the basic requirements. Runway Visual Range and cloud height near touchdown are very important parameters for Air Traffic Safety, Control and planning. The Meteorological equipments at Airports helps pilots and aviation personnel make critical decisions by providing continuous, real time information and reports on airport weather conditions.
Skylark ENGINEERING solutions are designed as per the customer requirements and also provide the flexibility to upgrade with the growth of the airport. All of our systems are scalable, with an open system architecture that makes expansion easy.
Skylark ENGINEERING offer system capable for tailoring a complete solution to any weather-related challenge. The systems can be customized to incorporate sensors that detect runway condition as well as more problematic weather phenomena such as freezing rain, winds hear and thunderstorms

Runway Visual Range System (RVR)
Skylark ENGINEERING Runway Visual Range System (RVR) is a fully automated runway visual range assessment and reporting system for airports. It provides calculated estimation of the distance a pilot can see down a runway. Prevailing weather conditions (e.g. fog, rain, snow, etc.) have the most impact on RVR, but ambient light levels and runway light settings are also an important part of the equation.
RVR measures meteorological optical range, background luminance and runway light setting and calculates runway visual range. Skylark ENGINEERING RVR values and alarms can be shown on the ATC displays and distributed to PC’s, chart recorders and other digital displays. The reporting format of the RVR values is ICAO compliant and the values can be used in METAR and MET REPORTs.
Feature and benefits:
- Fully automated RVR assessment and reporting
- Stand-alone system or an integral part of AWOS
- Compatible with CATI, CATII or III airports
- Flexible and scalable to meet any airports’ configuration needs
- ICAO compliant reporting format
Helicopter Automated Weather Observing Systems
Skylark ENGINEERING have installed and commissioned Heliport Weather systems on building rooftops, onshore and offshore helipads. The design of our system is completely flexible as per the site and customer needs.
Skylark ENGINEERING provide real-time weather reports for pilots and helipad operators. It helps pilots and aviation personnel make critical decisions on the landing platforms during the critical weather.
The sensors requirements at the helipads completely depend upon the end-user needs. The most common sensors that may be the part of the system are:
- Wind Speed / Wind Direction
- Temperature / Humidity
- Barometric Pressure
- Present Weather (Precipitation Identification)
- Cloud Height and Sky Condition
