  • What will it take? The Testbed Idea

    • Cooperation

    • Technical personnel - implement (meteorologists)

    • “ “ - evaluate (meteorologists)

    • “ “ - transfer (systems engineers)

    • Offline evaluation teams

    • Consensus of experts

    • On line verification (RTVS)

    • Operational environment for reliable delivery

    • Hardware, software, input data, product delivery

    • Training

    • Cooperation

Promising Programs

  • Weather Service Offices (WFOs):

    • Dallas- Ft. Worth Collaborative Aviation Forecast Study (DCAFS)

    • Airport Specific TAF Amendment Criteria (ASTAC)

      Center Weather Service Units (CWSUs):

    • New equipment ( RTA Replacement) to provide FAA personnel with more accurate information

    • Traffic Management Unit (TMU) Needs Document

      • FAA and NWS forming a Team to address the goals

      • Future NWS products for Air Route Traffic Control Center

      • traffic managers

      • Involvement from other NOAA agencies, such as FSL

      • Could change products for the terminal area that would be

      • available for the aviation community.

NWS Development Activities

  • Summary

  • NWS response to clients and users:

  • The National Weather Service has delivered research products into an operational environment ( CCFP, NCWF, ADDS).

  • Aviation weather products are now readily available on AWC Homepage, ADDS, and CDMNet.

  • Activities are underway to improve terminal forecasts and services to the ARTCCs

  • Continuing success depends on collaboration, partnership, and resources.
