Low Level Wind Shear
Alerting System
Intended Use

LLWSAS - Low Level Wind Shear Alerting System, designed in cooperation with the Laser Systems is elaborated to increase flight safety level while takeoff and landing operations via:

  • operational remote sensing and display of information on vector direction and speed rate of air flow at given altitudes;
  • identification of low level wind shear and turbulence in airdrome, heliport areas and landing grounds;
  • operational low level wind shear and turbulence alert to all airspace users, including crews of aircrafts.

Measurements of wind velocity and direction at given altitudes is achieved through implementation of wind LIDAR profilers WINDEX-300 and WINDEX-5000. WINDEX-300 is the base component of the first Russian low level wind shear detection system in the adjacent airdrome area.


The principle of WINDEX-300 operation is the following: at dissemination of laser (probing) signal in the atmosphere it reflects with a certain frequency from airborne particles dragged with wind flow (i.e. aerosol, molecule), that results to a change of return signal frequency – Doppler effect.

WINDEX-300 was developed in compliance with GOST Р 50723-94 and SanPiN 5804-01 (Russian State Standards), it refers to safe laser products, and operates in invisible eye range. Is proven by ROSPOTREBNADZOR Conformance Certificate.

  • WINDEX-300 is issued by the Interstate Aviation Committee and ROSSTANDART Certificate on Instrumentation Pattern Approval.
  • WINDEX-300 verification as a measuring tool was carried out on the basis of NPO (scientific production association) "Taifun" of ROSHYDROMET (Obninsk) and Mendeleev Federal State Unitary Enterprise (Saint-Petersburg).
WINDEX-300 allows to detect:
  • vertical wind speed component
  • horizontal wind speed component
  • wind speed direction with regard to the direction to the north
  • headwind and tailwind components with regard to the runway
  • vertical wind shear at the along-wind component with regard to the runway direction
Other application areas:

WINDEX-300 can be applied to receive information about wind parameters at given altitudes during training flights, stunt flying, championships of aerobatic, gliding, balloons, airships, etc.

Besides mentioned spheres WINDEX-300 can be used in the sphere of wind energy for research purposes, as well as in the ecologically hazardous objects to provide pre-disaster planning to protect environment from pollution.

  • Resistance to influence of environment: rain, rime, dew, icing, dust, est.

Inclusion of WINDEX-5000 in LLWSAS provides additional geo-referenced and runway referenced 3D information about gust front altitude position.

WINDEX-5000 is a Next Generation 3D LIDAR with new operational functionality and advantages. It is low-sensitive to cloud coverage except for very dense and low clouds at altitude less than 250 meters.

WINDEX-5000 is capable of measuring the turbulence and detecting the horizontal wind shear and vertical gusts.

Remote sensing data may be transmitted to authorized MET centers to be assimilated in weather forecast models.
