Convective Weather Forecast (Localized Aviation MOS Program ) Integration With FACET Task Completed
Mosaic ATM completed a year-long research task to integrate a probabilistic convective weather product into the NASA-developed Future Air traffic management Concepts Evaluation Tool (FACET). The Localized Aviation Model Output Statistics (MOS) Program (LAMP) produces probabilistic maps of forecasted convective activity up to 24 hours in advance. The objective of this task was to develop the capability to acquire LAMP data and compute national airspace capacity estimates and integrate it with FACET. The software developed under this contract advances NASA capabilities by providing researchers the ability to model weather impact in the strategic traffic flow management planning timeframe, typically two to eight hours. The main technical accomplishments include: review of airspace capacity models, development of a capability to translate a Gridded Probabilistic Forecast into a Deterministic Ensemble Forecast, development of airspace capacity models, each with increasing levels of complexity, validated against actual traffic, and development of a modular software environment that can be used by NASA to continue strategic weather translation modeling research. This effort was funded by the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act.

NASA & FAA Discuss Recent Progress and Future Goals for a Dynamic Airspace Configuration Capability
A meeting of the NASA-FAA Research Transition Team for Dynamic Airspace Configuration (DAC) was held in the Washington, D.C. area Feb. 8-10, 2011. There were over 25 attendees representing NASA, FAA, JPDO, and MITRE/CAASD. NASA researchers presented their work on adaptable/generic airspace, and received valuable feedback from FAA air traffic managers about operational considerations. The general consensus was that our DAC research is heading in the right direction and there was strong support for a technology demonstration of a sector combine/split advisory tool in a FAA facility such as the Seattle Air Route Traffic Control Center.
