Measuring AGL performance
MALMS Mobile Overview
Using a mobile photometric test system as part of a preventative maintenance strategy is the only way to achieve the runway serviceability requirements specified in national and international standards for beam intensity and orientation (ICAO Annex 14, EASA, FAA AC 150/5345-46)
MALMS Mobile Photometric Test System measures airfield lighting performance against the criteria for beam intensity and orientation defined in ICAO Annex 14. It is therefore suitable to confirm compliance with National and International Standards. Mobile also provides information to identify problems, develop maintenance strategies and produce work schedules and maintenance reports.
MALMS Mobile Photometric Test System is widely recognised as the best photometric measurement system available. A policy of continual development is designed to ensure that this leading position is maintained. The following advantages identify the key factors that make this possible.
Regulations state that for a precision approach runway, lighting systems should be measured using a mobile unit of sufficient accuracy to analyse the characteristics of individual lights. Most importantly, the accurate calculation of IRVR (required to determine whether it is safe to land and how many aircraft can be landed safely per hour) is reliant upon runway lighting operating effectively.
The MALMS Mobile Photometric Test System also provides information to identify problems, develop maintenance strategies and produce work schedules and maintenance reports and is widely recognized as the best photometric measurement system available. A policy of continual development is designed to ensure that this leading position is maintained.
