Airfield Marking Assessment

Airfield markings need to be compliant and properly maintained, in a timely fashion, in order to ensure the utmost safety on your airfield. However, standards (FAA, ICAO, etc.) for marking maintenance are not currently defined, making it virtually impossible for airports to objectively determine compliance and performance. As a result, airports routinely paint all of their markings, typically right before an inspection, often wasting valuable time and money.

Sightline invented the Airfield Marking Assessment in 2007 to identify which airfield markings need your immediate attention and what can be planned for future maintenance. Leveraging technology made in the USA, a Sightline expert quickly measures continuous marking retroreflectivity and color at the speed of light per ASTM E1710 and D6628. It's the fastest way to ensure airfield safety and compliance.

Meet "Mobi" - The first American-made mobile reflectometer customized to the airfield yielding GIS data for asset management integration.
