Scope:

This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) covers the requirements for a Stationary Runway Weather Information System (referred to as the system) to monitor the surface conditions of airfield operational areas to ensure safer ground operations of aircraft. The system provides (1) temperature and condition information of runway, taxiway, and ramp pavements and (2) atmospheric weather conditions that assist airport personnel to maintain safer and more efficient airport operations. The system can be either a wired system or a wireless system.

Rationale:

This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) covers the requirements for a Stationary Runway Weather Information System (referred to as the system or RWIS) to monitor the surface conditions of airfield operational areas to ensure safety. The RWIS shall provide (1) temperature and condition information of runway, taxiway, and ramp pavements and (2) provide atmospheric weather information conditions that assist needed airport personnel to maintain safer and more efficient airport operations and maintenance.

ARP5533 has been updated to reflect changes in technology advancements over the past 5 to 10 years. This document now incorporates updated solutions provided by Runway Weather Information System providers that offer more functionality and advanced features to improve the offering and capability of the solution provided to the airport. The goal of this document is to provide a basic set of requirements for an airport (or other) who want to specify and obtain an In-Pavement Runway Weather Information System.
