Abstract
THE PROPOSED EFFORT IS DIRECTED TOWARDS PROVIDING BOTH QUALITATIVE AND QUANTITATIVE IMPROVEMENTS TO THE CURRENT RAMSTAT RUNWAY CONDITION SENSING SYSTEM CONCEPT. THE TECHNICAL TASKS DESCRIBED HEREIN WILL ADD TO RAMSTAT THE FOLLOWING ADDITIONAL CAPABILITIES: (1) A SENSOR TO MEASURE THE PEAK WIND GUST FROM A NUDET TO GIVE A MORE DIRECT INDICATION OF ENVIRONMENTAL INSULT TO FACILITIES; (2) A TRAINING SIMULATOR TO ALLOW PILOT FAMILIARIZATION WITH RAMSTAT; (3) EXAMINATION AND THE ADDITION OF DATA FROM OTHER EXISTING WEATHER MONITORING SYSTEMS TO BROADEN THE DATA BASES FOR FALLOUT PREDICTION; AND (4) A CAPABILITY TO MEASURE RUNWAY SURFACE CONDITIONS PRIOR TO TOUCHDOWN AT UNMANNED RUNWAYS. ANY ONE OR A COMBINATION OF THESE FOUR AUGMENTATIONS WILL CONTRIBUTE TO INCREASE AIRCRAFT SURVIVAL AND RECOVERY.
