Abstract:

A test program was developed and implemented to evaluate multi-transmissometer systems. These consist primarily of instruments at touchdown, midpoint, and roll-out locations at five airfields distributed across the continent in differing climatic regimes. The airfields are located at Atlantic City, N. J., New York City, N. Y., Chicago, Ill., Denver, Colo., and Los Angeles, Calif. The data acquisition technique and program are described. Preliminary analysis of the small data sample thus far indicates that while large differences may exist between instrument locations, they tend to diminish as visibility decreases. Author
