Abstract:

The Interim Runway Visual RangeAutomated Surface Observing System Interface Interim RVRASOS Interface Instruction and Operational User Guide is intended to inform users of Interim RVRASOS Interface performance features. It is designed to allow users to become familiar with proper use of the interface to facilitate data transfer from the New Generation RVR System to the ASOS at required locations. Successful operation of the interface will enable automated Long-Line RVR service from equipped ASOSs. After reading this guide, users should be able to properly install, configure, start, and stop operation of the interface as well as trouble-shoot most problems that may occur during use. The guide is typically packaged as part of a kit containing equipment and accessories for unaided installation by airport technicians. As of January 31, 1998, operation of the interface exists at seven international airports including Los Angeles, CA Denver, CO Chicago, IL Portland, OR Nashville, TN Seattle, WA and San Francisco, CA. Federal Aviation Administration FAA plans include installation and operation of the interface at approximately 110 airports throughout the U.S. Current system requirements for installation of the interface are 1 New Generation RVR National Deployment Baseline version software and 2 ASOS software version 2.49.
