Turbulence Awareness for Strategic Aircraft Re-Routing (TASAR-R), Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

The Innovation Laboratory, Inc., proposes to develop a Decision Support Tool (DST) for strategic guidance to pilots for mitigating encounters with en route turbulence hazards. Implemented on either Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) Electronic Flight Bags (EFBs) or Personal Electronic Devices (PEDs), and standard turbulence data formats, the system is designed to increase the likelihood of Air Traffic Control (ATC) approval of a pilots trajectory change request by strategically presenting viable, pro-active trajectory change options to the pilot based on timely traffic and weather information. Distribution of our turbulence information to Airline Operations Centers (AOCs) allows airline dispatchers the ability to provide an additional safety net, adjusting flight plans to strategically avoid turbulence related hazards.
