The AutoAlert technology automatically sends out thunderstorm e-mail alerts to airport decision-makers as soon as a thunderstorm occurs in the vicinity of their airport. This now provides airlines, airport operators, and air traffic controllers with a reliable instrument enabling them to appropriately manage the situation while optimizing operating schedules.
stands for Automatic thunderstorm Alert
|An AutoAlert e-mail consists of a text message with a Rad-TRAM image in the attachment (see example).|
|AutoAlert generates an email as soon as lightning incidents are detected in Rad-TRAM cells that are located in the vicinity of an airport.|
|The messages are updated and sent every 30 minutes, if thunderstorms are active.|
|More frequent AutoAlert emails are generated only, if a thunderstorm will hit the airport within the next hour or if the thunderstorm is located within a 5 km circle around the airport.|
|AutoAlert messages have been provided to Munich Airport during the summers of 2013 and 2014|
