Truly Accurate Remote Detection Capability

Whether it is the critical information on the state of the atmosphere over the airport or the need to detect early incoming phenomena like fog, Raymetrics can supply you with the best remote sensing technology. Combining a decade of innovative development, providing products customized to various environmental conditions, Raymetrics 3D Ceilometer provides increased safety and efficiency of air operations

Why choose a 3D Ceilometer from Raymetrics?

A whole new dimension in Aviation and Meteorology

Introducing the revolution in remote observation on the atmosphere (clouds, volcanic ash, etc), the Raymetrics 3D Ceilometer is designed to work as a visual radar, as well as to deliver records of the radiation that is backscattered in the components of the atmosphere (molecules, aerosols, clouds, etc.)

3D Ceilometer: Strength for increased safety

Traditional LIDAR systems are designed to produce single wavelength backscatter measurement, however, this is not enough in many cases. Unlike other ceilometers, Raymetrics 3D Ceilometer is the only system to provide accurate three dimensional, scientific-grade precision measurements with a range up to 15Km


How do LIDARs Work?

The system emits an eye-safe laser beam into the atmosphere. Laser light is scattered by particles in the atmosphere and some is returned to a telescope
Because the speed of light is known, the distance to atmospheric layers can be determined
From the properties of the light, certain atmospheric characteristics can also be determined
