The Challenge of Dana Accident (1/1) National Response to Dana Accident The major challenge that confronted the Aviation sector in 2012 was the Dana Accident which occurred on 3rd June 2012. As a result of the Dana Accident: The Safety Components of the Aviation Sector Master Plan were Fast-Tracked; The Federal Government set-up a Technical and Administrative Review Panel on Domestic Airlines (TARPDA) which submitted a Report containing 41 recommendations; All recommendations made by TARPDA covering the focus areas of the Transformation Programme have been implemented up to 95% In the first week of June 2013, an Aviation Safety week was celebrated to raise awareness on the significant progress on safety and security issues; In commemoration of the first anniversary, Mr. President unveiled a memorial cenotaph in honour of the fallen heroes 8 9. Achievements on Safety and Security Safety in Aviation is not a Destination, it is an Ongoing and Continuous Process Aviation Safety and Security Components under the Transformation Programme are categorized into the following: Meteorological Services and Infrastructure Communication, Navigation, Surveillance Services and Infrastructure Accident Investigation & Prevention Systems, Processes and Infrastructure Components Section 3 9 10. Meteorological Services and Infrastructure (1/13) In recognition of the critical nature of accurate and real time weather services to safe navigation we have acquired state of the art technology, to enhance Meteorological safety within our air space Some of the safety technology we acquired and installed over the last two years (and their various locations) are shown in the following slides: Achievements on Safety and Security 10 11. Doppler Weather Radar Station (2/13) This state-of-the-art equipment is used for: Real time detection and tracking of hazardous weather systems such as thunderstorms, wind shear turbulence, dust storms, etc. Providing Early Warnings for pilots and the general public of hazardous weather systems. Determining the precise location of areas of turbulence and wind shear in the atmosphere. Determining the height, amount of precipitation, speed of movement of rain- bearing clouds. Accurate and timely weather forecast. Achievements on Safety and Security 11 12. Thunderstorm & Lightning Detectors (3/13) Thunderstorms and lightning constitute major hazards for aircraft. They are detected by means of specialized sensors in Lightening & Thunderstorm Detectors. . Since the inception of this administration 22 Nigerian airports have been equipped with lightning and thunderstorm detection equipment. NIMETs thunderstorm detectors cover a range of about 200 km. Achievements on Safety and Security 12 13. Low Level Wind Shear Alert Systems (LLWAS) (4/13) LLWAS measures wind speed and direction at remote sensor stations situated around an airport. It generates warnings when wind shear or microburst conditions are detected. Current wind speed and direction data and warnings are displayed for approach controllers in the Terminal Radar Approach Control Facility (TRACON) and for ground controllers in the Air Traffic Control Tower (ATCT). Air Traffic Controllers (ATCs) relay the LLWAS runway specific alerts to Pilots via voice radio communication. LLWAS assists pilots during critical times of Take off and Landing when they must determine whether to attempt to land or take off in hazardous weather conditions (Severe Turbulence).LLWAS Sensors on Masts LLWAS Indoor Display Screen Achievements on Safety and Security 13 14. Instrument Calibration Workshop (5/13) The new Instrument Calibration Laboratory is located at the National Weather Centre Complex, Abuja Airport. It is used for calibration and standardization of various field equipment at least once every year in accordance with the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and World Meteorological Organization (WMO) Standard and Recommended Practice (SARP).Thermometer & humidity test chamber Pressure calibration chamber Wind tunnel for testing & calibrating wind instruments Solar radiation calibration Achievements on Safety and Security 14 15. Upper Air Sounding Equipment (6/13) The Upper Air equipment measures the condition of the atmosphere (pressure, wind speed and direction, dry and wet bulb temperatures, humidity) at different heights.
