  • 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

Cooperative Roles of Operations and Research


The AWC Testbed is the ANVIL on which convective, turbulence, icing, ceiling visibility products are evaluated and prepared for operational applications


International Responsibilities turbulence, icing, ceiling visibility products are evaluated and prepared for operational applications

IFFDP

International Products


Promising Programs turbulence, icing, ceiling visibility products are evaluated and prepared for operational applications

  • 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 turbulence, icing, ceiling visibility products are evaluated and prepared for operational applications

  • 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.
