IANS Experimental Flight Base in May

IANS Concern is pleased to present you a new video of our experimental flight base at Orlovka airfield. The video was shot from a quadcopter to demonstrate day and night activities of the flight base. We have also added the shooting of our bear as a small informal bonus to put you in good spirits :)

Meteorological Radar Station
for Airdrome Terminal Area "Monocle"
Intended use:

Meteorological Radar Station for Airdrome Terminal Area ("Monocle") ensures radar field of weather observation in the areas of aviation basing where installing stationary weather radar is either impossible or impractical. Monocle is compliant with the Russian Preliminary National Standard 170-2016 "Meteorological Radar Complex for Airfield Near Area".

Monocle ensures collection, processing and timely provision of radar weather information to meteorological services and civil (state) aviation units and/or any other interested users.

Such information includes:

  • fields of cloudiness;
  • precipitation and related weather hazards;
  • rainfall intensity;
  • wind conditions in the detected cloudiness;
  • turbulence, vertical and horizontal wind shears in the given scanning sector.
Monocle solves the following tasks:
  • detection and classification of meteorological phenomena during circle, sectorial and scanning monitoring of the area;
  • detection of hazardous turbulence and wind shear while prioritizing of predetermined areas.

Operating principle

Monocle consists of a weather radar unit performing emission of probing radio pulses, reception, signal pre-processing and digitization. Scanning is realized by a narrow antenna pattern beam through sequential azimuthal viewing in the horizontal plane, and then switching to elevation in the vertical plane.

Monocle operation is provided by specialized software that is installed in the workstation. The software monitors radar's performance ensures control, signal processing and output of the results.

Primary and secondary data processing, storage and display to users is carried out through an automated workstation. The capacity of data transmission line between the radar and workstation should be no less than 100 Mbit/s.

Doppler radar signals are processed on the basis of a coherent digital processing of the complex echo spectrum. Meteorological information can be transmitted to external users in BUFR codes.

Monocle installation

Monocle can be installed on the roofs of administrative and other buildings and on special masts (towers). The decision on the need for a tower or rack, its type and size should be taken after preliminary field survey while performing design and survey work.

The survey (1-2 specialists) is required for installing the station. The installation site must have a level surface with a size of at least 750x750 mm, ensuring reliable installation using regular fastening kit. Monocle's low weight and compact dimensions also enable mobile installation option.

Monocle’s advantages:
  • high quality of information on high-speed and turbulent characteristics of weather phenomena;
  • low power consumption;
  • small dimensions and light weight;
  • low cost of installation;
  • low maintenance cost;
  • safe for human;
  • possibility of installation on different buildings (including high-rise ones);
  • possibility to create a mobile version;
  • possibility of autonomous work.
