The performance of a slant visibility equipment and the data processing techniques used are described. Special attention is given to the correlation data which compares the accuracy of the slant visibility system to that of a recognized transmissometer. It is shown that the use of the lidar technique in a SVR (Slant Visual Range) system which would supplement the RVR (Runway Visual Range) Systems at airports may very well become a near future application especially when reliable eye-safe lasers are available at a reasonable price.
