Airports Around the World Use Our Reliable, Maintenance-Free Solutions

Airports around the world rely on ceilometers, visibility, weather, and runway sensors from OTT HydroMet because they are flexible, easy to integrate, and long-term maintenance-free.

OTT HydroMet measuring instruments, software, and experts support you in every weather-related topic to improve safety and operational efficiency in any environmental conditions. We can support anything from building up Airport Weather Observation Systems (AWOS) and Runway Ice Detection Systems (IDS) to delivering decision support for flight scheduling.

Webinar: Efficient TALPA Workflow with Mobile Runway Weather Sensors

Get answers to these top questions:

How did Take Off and Landing Performance TALPA come to be? How is the Runway Condition Assessment Matrix used to determine runway condition codes? How can contaminants be objectively measured with Mobile Runway Weather Sensors?

Brochure about Weather Critical Operations

Offshore wind farms and increasingly large solar parks play an important role in global energy supply. Our mobility knows no bounds. We rely on an infrastructure that functions efficiently - on land, in water or in the air. Experienced decision-makers ensure that “outdoor” technology operates flawlessly. Environmental sensors are indispensable here as the basis for decisions.

Weather and Runway Observation for Airports

The Lufft sensors from the WS-product family are in operation on airports worldwide for real time weather observations. Moreover, the active and passive road- / runway sensors (IRS31-UMB and the ARS31-UMB) are in use on the runways for measurement of water film height or road surface temperature and freezing temperature, for example.
