Product Implementation Strategy
  • Strong Industry cost sharing through Cooperative Research
  • Agreements (CRA)
  • Airline/operator participation in CRAs
  • Cost/Market assessment studies funded
  • FAA/NASA Working Groups/Teams being established
  • Participation in Industry/Government working groups dealing
  • with technology and standards development: RTCA, ICAO
  • Joint Safety Assessment/Implementation Teams, etc.
  • Strong National Turbulence Research Coalition assisting in
  • defining NASA direction

Project Accomplishments
  • Completed AWIN Phase 1 Cooperative Research Agreements
  • (50/50 Industry Cost Sharing) with Phase 2 Agreements
  • ramping up.
  • NASA 757 aircraft preparation nearly complete for Summer
  • 2000 flight experiments of an Initial AWIN, Forward-
  • Looking Detection and Turbulence In-Situ Systems.
  • FAA-NASA Weather Safety Memorandum of Agreement was
  • signed June 30, 2000. Formalized teaming arrangements is
  • starting. NOAA/NWS-NASA formal coordination to start soon.
  • NASA participation in FAA-NASA-Industry Joint Safety
  • Assessment and Implementation Teams.
