Research Institution
We build a system that supports the weather information needs of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) planning to fly in the National Airspace System (NAS). This weather information service will supply information to UAS Ground Control Stations (GCSs) from the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) 4D Weather Data Cube, the Single Authoritative Source (SAS) for aviation weather information, and associated modules which will determine the impacts that weather will have on the UAS. A centralized distribution system, based on a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), provides weather and constraint information to airlines and pilots (including UAS operators) - the design follows JPDO guidelines. In NextGen, the design goal is for all aircraft flying in the NAS (including UASs) to have a consistent set of weather constraints.
