The scope of Mitsubishi Electric systems and solutions helping to improve people’s quality of life is impressively broad. From particle therapy systems to public administration systems and water systems for the social infrastructure, our innovative technologies are providing benefits in wide-ranging areas of society.
Doppler Lidar system transmits laser beams, receives the light backscattered by aerosols such as dust and other particles in the air, and measures the line-of-sight component of wind speed using the Doppler frequency shift of the backscattered light. Since a Doppler Lidar system can measure the distance between the lidar and particles in the air utilizing the roundtrip time of backscattered light, unlike conventional anemometers, wind direction and speed can be measured remotely.
Mitsubishi Electric is supporting air traffic safety through cutting-edge radar systems. Mitsubishi Electric’s windshear monitoring radar is used by Hong Kong International Airport, one of Asia’s key airline hubs. Today, automatic operation is relied on to a great extent in landing aircraft. However, if there is turbulence due to adverse weather conditions, manual operation is used in order to ensure the stability and safety of the plane. At these times, it is essential for the pilot to have an accurate awareness of the wind flow around the plane's course in real time. Weather Doppler radar makes this possible.
Mitsubishi Electric offers two types of particle therapy system: the Proton Type, which produces a proton beam by accelerating the positively charged particle (ion) that results from stripping a single electron from a hydrogen atom, and can be used for proton beam treatment; and the Carbon and Proton Type, which accelerates the nucleus of elements with an atom heavier than a proton, such as carbon and helium, and can be used for heavy ion beam or proton beam treatment.
Mitsubishi Electric produces cost-efficient ozone generation water treatment systems of various sizes and capacities for industrial applications and municipal government use. These systems generate ozone more efficiently using less electricity. The ozone is used to purify river water or wastewater, eliminating bacteria that cause odor and color, and creating safe, clean water for reuse.
