Weather Hazard Alert and Awareness Technology Radiation Radiosonde (WHAATRR) Glider

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Weather Hazard Alert and Awareness Technology Radiation Radiosonde (WHAATRR) Glider
High-Level Research Goals are to develop an onboard, real time weather sensor suite and processors for all aircraft that detects aviation weather hazards, uploads current radar (uses on-board radar for aircraft equipped), networks weather/radiation data with other WHAATRR equipped aircraft, has weather model data for the route of flight at preflight and updates that data during flight. The onboard processor then provides strategic, efficient and safe route changes to auto-pilots, pilots and operators, and distributes weather data to meteorologists and forecast modelers for forecast verification and model improvements and issues warnings with a safe route to avoid the hazard to the pilot and distributes that warning to other aircraft in the vicinity More »
