What Wake Watch Does

Our technology enables safe increases in runway capacity

Wake Watch can provide superior real-time, high-resolution measurement of wind and aircraft wakes.

Our products assist particularly in two areas:

  1. Accurate and reliable tracking of aircraft wake turbulence, facilitating weather dependent aircraft separation and increased runway capacity.
  2. Reliable detection of wind shear, improving aircraft safety.

Wake Watch’s proprietary technology is an enormous improvement over older systems in terms of both accuracy and availability. In particular, our systems will operate efficiently at low altitudes and in difficult weather or atmospheric conditions such as fog, dust or stratification that limit existing measurement tools.

Together with our partners we can offer airlines and airports a path to improve efficiency operating within a safe regulatory framework.
