Abstract:

This effort was directed toward the evaluation of a Belfort calibration test stand which has been designed and manufactured for calibrating the Belfort type N wind vector transmitters being used at operational airports for the Low-Level Wind Shear Alert System LLWAS. Results indicate that the calibration test stand allows accurate calibration of the wind vector transmitter anemometer, but some improvement in design is recommended before quantity procurement is considered.
