Runway Visual Range (RVR) for airports is an automated system that measures visibility, background luminance, and the intensity (brightness) of the runway lights. This data is processed in Coastal’s Aviation INTERCEPT® software to determine the actual distance a pilot should be able to see down the runway.Coastal’s system is both flexible and scalable. A basic RVR system includes a 3 meter tower, field data collection unit, visibility sensor, ambient light (luminance) sensor, and Aviation INTERCEPT software. An optional Runway Light Intensity Monitor can be added for automatic detection of runway light levels. Multiple options are available for each sensor.Coastal can customize power and telecommunications according to customer requirements.
