IRI and Boeing Roughness

RPS can measure the roughness characteristics of runways and taxiways that affect aircraft ride quality

In a similar way to the rutting measures, International Roughness Index (IRI) and Boeing roughness is calculated via the surface mesh data. The height profiles in the direction of travel is fed into the standard Boeing roughness code (FAA Software PROFAA), allowing generation of both IRI and Boeing roughness.
