This paper is presented as an analysis of PAPI system’s ground and flight inspection data correlation and experience of utilization of the opto-electronic system in Mongolia. The primary objective of this paper is to identify operational limitation of usage of the opto-electronic system in Mongolian environment and to establish the best technique for inspection of PAPI systems in harsh environmental country such as Mongolia.
The modern opto-electronic tool can measure all PAPI boxes aperture elevation angle, intensity and chromaticity of red/white sector and produce the “isocandela” diagrams compose to flight inspection which 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 the best technique and establishing the operational environment limitation of use of the opto-electronic system, CAAM is planning to have the most cost effective PAPI inspection system.
