PRE-LANDING HMS Display
Before the helicopter lands HMS-900 displays the “Pre-landing” page on the Operators display.
HMS-900 processes the data and analyses the Motion Severity Index (MSI), Wind Severity Index (WSI) and displays the information through the Helideck Repeater Lights and they will display Blue / Amber / Red.
The meteorological parameters are displayed as specified in the CAP 437 requirements. The motion data is displayed as per the current HCA recommendations and the relation between the MSI and WSI is displayed in a graphical format.
ON DECK HMS Display
After the helicopter has landed and preceding takeoff HMS-900 shows “On-Deck” page on the Operators display.
HMS-900 processes the data and analyses the Relative Wind Direction (RWD) and displays the information through the Helideck Repeater Lights and they will display flashing Blue / Amber / Red in accordance with the information received.
The controlling algorithm will also change, rather than the MSI/WSI the on stop light is now controlled by the wind direction relative to the helicopter and the wind speed. The other meteorological parameters needed to for a safe take off will still be displayed.
