This paper is presented as an analysis of PAPI system’s ground and flight inspection data correlation and experience of utilization of the photometric measurement tool in Mongolia. The primary objective of this paper is identify operational limitation of usage of the photometric measurement tool in Mongolian environment and establish best technique for inspection of PAPI systems in harsh environmental country such as a Mongolia.
The modern photometric measurement tool can measure for all PAPI boxes aperture elevation angle, intensity and chromaticity of red/white sector and produce the “isocandela” diagrams than flight inspection can measure the elevation angle only. Analysis of photometric measurements performed in 2016-2017 years shown an operational benefit of this system but acceptable level of operational limitation and unification of measurement technique should be considered.
After identifying best technique and establishing the operational environment limitation of use of the photometric measurement tool CAAM is planning to have most cost effective PAPI inspection system.
