Delivering technologies for a safer world
Vaisala has developed two new sensors that fundamentally change the state-of-the-art of weather sensing for aviation. The Vaisala Forward Scatter Sensor FD70 and the Vaisala Ceilometer CL61 with Depolarization allow unprecedented sensing of both surface-based weather phenomena as well as aloft.
In this presentation we will discuss the technologies employed in these new sensing platforms and then illustrate how these sensors, when used together, can provide a new level of situational awareness for weather forecasters and aviation decision makers. We will also look at a real-world case study from a winter weather event in Helsinki, Finland in January of 2022 where both sensors were deployed.
