The Boeing Company
Perspective from Boeing
Graphical and Database Needs
Benefits w/observations advancements:
Increased use of aircraft as sensor platform
Potential real-time sharing of in situ observations
ATC communicates with aircraft via voice, although ACARS and FANS / CPDLC have made significant inroads in recent years
Dispatch use of ACARS is airline dependent (both uplink and downlink meteorological/turbulence)
Future key differences
Near-term: Broadband links will be used to communicate strategic weather data to flight crews. New information management architectures will be used.
Mid-term: Increased aircraft wx/turbulence observations, enabling improved forecasts and nowcasts. Continued adoption of onboard weather radar for tactical planning.
Longer-term: Data linked AIS & MET information may be used for “controlling, safety-critical functions” -- not just for “advisory” purposes
