RightSizing Briefing to

The Friends and Partners in Aviation Weather

Victor Passetti, PMP

RightSizing the Sensor Network Project Lead

August 8, 2012


OI - 103122

The sensor network will be improved and right-sized to ensure formation sufficiency, reliability, and availability while reducing life-cycle costs.


FAA currently owns multiple weather sensor systemsMost are past their design lifeCosts to maintain are increasingClosed designs limits future enhancements

Current Legacy Systems

New Gen RVR first fielded ’88

259 airport systems

LLWAS first fielded ’81

89 systems

Federal AWOS first fielded ’86

200 systems

ASOS first fielded in ’88

987 systems

AWSS first fielded ’99

60 systems


Challenges with current capabilities
Challenges with Current Capabilities

Runway 27R

  • Overlapping sensing elements

  • Closed systems do not effectively share data

  • Proprietary processors and software difficult to maintain and harder to change

  • Systems rely on hardwire and RF links which are costly and difficult to sustain

  • Sensors no longer state of the art

  • Becoming more difficult to maintain aging hardware exposed to the elements


Issues with current prevailing visibility report
Issues with Current Prevailing Visibility Report

Visibility and Wind Too Close to Obstructions


Current most sensors excluding rvr not optimally sited
Current – Most Sensors (excluding RVR) Not Optimally Sited

Enterprise Architecture - Typical Large Airport

  • Eliminate Hundreds of Central Processing Equipment Cabinets

  • Eliminate Thousands of Field Processor Equipment Cabinets

  • Eliminate Thousands of Sensors

  • Increase Sensor Coverage and Number of Measurements

  • More Data Available to More Users

  • Save $170 Million Plus on Equipment Alone


Project activities ftsn concept demonstration
Project Activities – FTSN Concept Demonstration

  • At the WJHTC

  • July 31, Aug 1, and 2

  • Collector Equipment and Functional Demonstration

    • Canned sensor data

      • To mimic terminal coverage

    • Live sensors

      • In laboratory environment

      • Demonstrates communication with Collector

        • Wireless

    • Emulation software

      • To trigger “events”


Project Activities – FTSN Three Season Demo

  • Demonstrate wireless network concept

  • Face outdoor challenges/weather
