[Avionics Today 10-16-2015] Newcastle International Airport has become the United Kingdom’s first airport to use Biral’s advanced forward scatter meter sensors in upgrading its Runway Visual Range (RVR) VPF-730equipment to achieve Category III runway status. NATS and Aeronautical & General Instruments Limited (AGI) worked to implement these sensors. The companies have since also worked with Manchester Airport to trial the Biral equipment there.
