Type of equipment used to measure runway surface friction...
Never came across IMG there before, so as clueless as you I'm afraid

Hi Guys,

This is what they published in the ATIS :-

RWY 27R COV WITH WET SN
RWY 27R FCT MEASURED WITH IMAG ON EACH RWY AT :0 56 :0 53 :0 40
CHEMICAL TREATMENT ON RWY.

So I guess it's Imaging after all.

Anyone has any ideas on the technology behind this ?

Cheers

Check this PDF http://www.stac.aviation-civile.gouv...imaggb2004.pdf maybe img is a French abbreviation for imag ... Anyone able to chech the French AIP for a country specific abbreviation "img " ???
And according to this : Weather (SNOWTAM) for all Types of measuring equipment a 3letter code format is used
