Wayne Rolfe, TMS' Sales and Marketing Manager explained that examples of the MALMS trailer which can be towed behind any vehicle, are already in service at 61 airports.
Highlighting the fact that good maintenance is just as important to performance as good equipment, TMS has produced the MALMS Cleaner which, as the name suggests, does away with the need for manual or potentially-damaging high-pressure water cleaning at ground level.
"The information it has provided will also be used in new promotional material to demonstrate the quality of MALMS measurement technique and the results of the model are also enabling us to configure a new, lower cost system to extend our product range."
Operation of the MALMS AGL Cleaner has shown that the system can dean a minimum of four lights per minute, therefore in less than one hour a full 3,000m CAT III centreline would be cleaned utilising one vehicle and one operator.
The MALMS Mobile database is designed to enable the maintenance manager to maintain the AGL system to ICAO serviceability requirements in the most efficient and effective manner.
In fact, because of the ability of MALMS Mobile (the award-winning photometric measurement system) to rapidly quantify the performance of AGL services on the runway, and the MALMS Workshop to test refurbished fitting before they were re-installed, the exercise was completed within an extremely tight time window of under 24 hours.
At present, TMS is supplying MALMS systems to Dubai, Leeds Bradford and Prague International airports.
For instance, MALMS is a prime example of the mobile photometric measurement technology now recommended by the ICAO, UK CAA, FAA and other national regulators as the only effective means of determining the true performance of lighting services.
