DALFSEN, the Netherlands – Amarcon, a part of the ABB group, and Observator Instruments, a developer of sensors and services for meteorological and hydrological monitoring, will jointly develop a helideck monitoring and forecasting system to improve the flight and passenger safety during helicopter landings and takeoffs.

The new system, which will fully integrate with Amarcon’s vessel advisory system OCTOPUS, will monitor weather conditions and advise a vessel’s crew whether to proceed with an intended helicopter operation (go/no-go) or to wait. The system’s analysis and recommendation will be based on weather data from the past 20 minutes.
