Technical Information

IMAG is an automatic skid resistance measurement device for runways designed by the Civil Aviation Technical Centre (STAC) of the French Civil Aviation Administration (DGAC), developed in collaboration with Aeroports de Paris (ADP).

Patented in 1991, IMAG is currently used in operational conditions on several French airports such as Roissy-Charles de Gaulle, Orly, Strasbourg, Metz-Nancy-Lorraine and Europort Vatry.

On these airports, the IMAG is used during the winter period to measure runway surface friction and to inform pilots about runway conditions.
