Telvent launches its new Cirrus 100 Ceilometer

March 12, 2008

Madrid, March 12, 2008. – Telvent (Nasdaq: TLVT), the information technologies company for a sustainable and secure world, announced today the launching of one of its most innovative products in state-of-the-art technology targeted at air traffic control: the Cirrus 100 ceilometer. Presentation of this new solution will take place at the 2008 ATC Global trade fair held March 11-13 in Amsterdam.

Telvent’s new Cirrus 100 ceilometer is named for the type of clouds that normally form over 7 km and which are usually made up of ice crystals. The aim of the product is to measure cloud height. The data, once captured and treated, provide real-time information on existing visibility conditions, which is tremendously useful in decision-making during takeoff and landing. The solution will therefore provide increased security and reliability for these maneuvers.

According to Enrique Monteagudo, Chief Marketing and Technology Officer of Telvent's Environment division, “Telvent’s research and development programme is continuously generating new innovative technology for our aviation meteorological systems. The Telvent Cirrus 100 is the most innovative ceilometer available on the market today”.

The new ceilometer also has the ability to capture information and operate under all kinds of meteorological conditions. People will have the chance to discover all of its functions firsthand at stand D212 of the ATC trade fair.
