Research Institution

We develop a system composed of two displays, one for the Flight Deck (FD) and one for the Airline Operational Control (AOC) dispatcher.  The FD and AOC displays form a shared situational awareness of the different forms of turbulence hazards that are ahead of the aircraft.   A wide range of turbulence measurement, sensing, and forecasting systems are available, and we determined the most appropriate for aviation weather hazards originating from convective induced turbulence, mountain wave turbulence, and clear air turbulence.  The FD and AOC displays are used to exchange candidate flight plan amendments that can mitigate the turbulence weather hazards ahead of the aircraft, meeting the additional requirements known to the FD or the AOC.  Agreement from both the FD and AOC is required to thereafter file the flight plan amendement with the air traffic service provider.
