Radar Wind and Temperature Profiler System (RWTPS)

The installation of the Radar Wind and Temperature System (RWTPS), will enable the Meteorological Directorate to calculate and measure instant wind direction and speed as well as temperature and relative humidity at Bahrain International Airport every five minutes. This will serve in enhancing the accuracy when issuing different types of aerodrome warning for the aviation sector.
