SESAR Open Day

On 22nd of March Poprad Airport (LZTT) hosted Open Day for SESAR Pj03b-06 validation exercise related to runway surface condition awareness led by LPS SR (slovak Air Navigation Service Provider) and supported by MicroStep-MIS as linked third party and industry partner of LPS SR.

Except domestic participants from LPS SR, MicroStep-MIS, LZTT and Slovak Hydro Meteorological Institute, presentation visited also Solution leader of SESAR Solution Pj03b-06 Patrick Boulet from DSNA (french Air Navigation Service Provider), Fabien Moll from Airbus and two representatives from PANSA (Polish Air Navigation Services Agency). After general presentation of the validation exercise by LPS SR and overall view of solution by Patrick Boulet, Fabien presented CORSAIR system, which is also part of this SESAR solution.

Finally the MicroStep-MIS presented the main point of the Open Day - ARWIS (Airport Runway Weather Information System) developed within this SESAR solution, which integrates embedded runway surface sensors and other meteorological sensors to estimate runway surface conditions in accordance with new global reporting format introducing Runway Condition Code for runway surface condition reporting. Moreover proposed solution came with short term forecast of runway surface condition and user-configurable operational alerts on both measured and forecast parameters.

The presentation resulted in invitation to actively attend and present the solution also on Global Airport Safety Net Forum (4th - 5th of April, Toulouse) and consequently on Kick-off Meeting of EUROCAE WG-109 Runway Weather Information Systems (23th - 24th of May, Paris).
