RetroTek-D the most efficient and cost effective solution for airside markings assessment
Many airports globally are subject to mandatory minimum standards in retroreflectivity for runway and taxiway markings. Airport retroreflectivity measurement is a critical safety aspect for airports that have to continue to operate in low visibility conditions. The pilots ability to see and read key safety markings are absolutely crucial in all lighting conditions. In addition, runway markings are particularly susceptible to shorter remarking maintenance schedules due to the rubber deposits from landing aircrafts.
Our innovative RetroTek-D mobile retroreflectometer, includes the latest technology developments in machine vision, LED lighting and articifial intelligence to provide Airport Authorities with accurate data on the quality of critical airside markings. Providing the same level of accuracy as handheld devices our system collects all marking data across a wide field of assessment at normal traffic speeds, minimising the amount of time needed for airside surveys. This includes measurement of the retroreflectivity (RL) of airside markings, safety warnings and symbols. It also records the day contrast ratios of lines and markings. Our system enables Airport Authorities to rapidly pinpoint survey marking failures which are time stamped, colour coded, GPS tagged and have video footage of each marking at the time of survey.
Efficient, safe & easy
50% reduction in survey operator and fuel costs compared to side mounted retroreflectometers.
Our Customer's Feedback
"best bit of kit out there"
“When it comes to retro-reflectivity measurement, it’s definitely the best bit of kit out there at the moment 😃”
Richard Wix, Principal Consultant at ARRB
"Transport Infrastructure Ireland were very happy with the survey."
“Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) were very happy with the survey results and impressed with the RetroTek-Pro software with interactive data base and video analysis. The timescale was tight (12 weeks) and delivery was enabled by the efficiency of the RetroTek system.”
