  • Weather Safety in Real-0me: A Look at todays avia0on weather capabili0es from

    Drones to Airliners

    PRESENTATION NAME

  • Typical sUAS Types

    Conven&onal Fixed wing Design Hand, rail, gear takeoff Flight dura&ons 60-120 mins Mul&ple Payload op&ons Best BLOS candidate 0-60 kts, stall speeds 10 kts 20 kt max l/d Full autoflight avionics Variety of landing systems

    Mul&rotor designs Ease of flight Flight dura&on

  • 400,000 + UAVs will need easy weather access We are jointly building an ADDS-like site for UAVs

    Societal benefits!

    Sensurion/UCAR Drone-WX

    TAFS METARS PIREPS AIRSPACE WX MAPS

    Current ADDS site

    Drone-WX Mobile app

  • In addition to current weather sensors, weather gathering will be important for UAVs as well

    Sensurion Magpie-1

    Societal benefits!

  • Using UAVs for HazMat Plume modelling

    Atmospheric modeling provides detail of hazard mo&on Hazard plume track and concentra&on data helps with emergency planning and

    during the event Expanded sensor network benefits all (private & government) hazard aler&ng &

    response UAVs can also find release point

    Sensors on other buildings & vehicles provide early warning

    Plume Modeling and Hazard Alert

    Hazard Release Point

  • FAA goal=10% GA accident reduction in 10 years. 3 of top ten accident causes due to weather! Real-time weather to aircraft

    very advanced in General Aviation displays with ADS-B Weather

    Aspen MFD with ADS-B WX

    G/A Displays with RADAR and/or ADS-B WX

    ADS-B Weather on iPad

  • Many Airlines par&cipate in MDCRS, helping with NEXRAD Turbulence Detec&on Algorithm

  • Airlines Reducing Turbulence Injuries with NCAR OCND, Satcom datalink, and printer or EFB display

    + 153744 + 160400 +

  • Convective WX reroutes using Electronic Flight Bag and Live Weather...

    UA476 DEN-PHL planned at 3:45 (normally 3:15) and actual time flown was 3:20, saving 25 minutes and 2,100 lbs of fuel. This was the result of having access to real time weather information that allowed the crew to avoid the convective activity.

    1. Normally Planned Route

    PHL

    2. Planned Re-Route Due to WX

    3. Actual Route Flown with EFB WX Info
