Tradewind Scientific

Tradewind Scientific Ltd. is a leading Canadian aerospace company focused on airport safety and environment-related products and services. Our dedicated and versatile team of scientists, engineers, and technicians has extensive experience with airfield project work. We work closely with civil, military, and private airports in Canada, the U.S., the Caribbean, Europe, and Scandinavia, to develop and implement a wide range of customized and cost-effective technologies for airport applications. Over 200 major projects have been completed worldwide since our founding in 1980.

  • As part of Canada’s move towards harmonization with ICAO standards, the next generation of TRACR II® Airfield Surface Condition Reporting Systems is currently being deployed nationally. By leveraging Tradewind’s extensive experience with end-to-end electronic AMSCR and SNOWTAM systems in Scandinavia and elsewhere, we have been able to create an innovative new platform for report generation and distribution.
  • Significant enhancements have also been made to our “best-in-class” TRACR II® Airfield Inspection Module (AIM), which provides a rich user interface for efficient and reliable tracking of airfield deficiencies and inspections, to help ensure airport compliance with new safety management systems (SMS) regulations.
  • We also remain an exclusive provider of sales and support in North America for our principal friction measurement products. We are currently partnered with SARSYS AB (Scandinavian Airport and Road Systems) Volvo, Saab, and STFT Surface Friction Testers, Findlay Irvine Ltd. GripTester Trailers and TES Instruments Electronic Decelerometers.

We have an ongoing product development/technology roadmap to ensure that our clients will be kept up to date with the latest technology advancements. Furthermore, we are committed to ensuring that our customers will have working solutions ahead of regulatory changes. Combined with our years of practical experience, this guarantees that Tradewind Scientific will remain, to airports large and small, a leading provider of friction measurement, airfield condition reporting and environmental monitoring solutions.
