ADLS Light Manager for wind farm
To install, as part of a radar lighting impact mitigation project, an ADLS (Radar) Light Manager that provides for bidirectional communication between the beacons and the control centre.
The ADLS (Radar) Light Manager is used to receive a signal from a radar unit installed on a wind farm that activates the obstruction lights when an approaching aircraft is detected and turns them off once the aircraft has left the perimeter. This control system makes it possible to obtain confirmation of the date and time an order was received as well as confirmation of the status of the obstruction lights after receiving the order. This vital information is stored in a log that allows owners to provide proof of the proper functioning of the equipment.
This solution is one of the components of a system aimed at mitigating the nuisance caused by obstruction lighting. It offers the local community a considerably less luminous environment and reduces light pollution, while keeping the sky safe for pilots. Technostrobe fully met the requirements set out in the mandate of the South Dakota authorities.
