Boeing InFlight Optimization Services team visits Ames for Technical Exchange on Dynamic Weather Routes (DWR) Test Results and Software
January 20, 2015

Six members of Boeing's InFlight Optimization Services team and one from Jeppesen visited Ames on January 13, 2015 for detailed discussions on Dynamic Weather Routes (DWR) software test results. In 2008, Boeing licensed the NASA-developed Direct-To software and has developed a product called “Direct Routes” which uplinks smart direct route requests to commercial flight crews for time and fuel savings in US airspace. In 2014, Boeing licensed the DWR software and is now determining how best to expand their Direct Routes product to included DWR route advisories for more efficient routes around convective weather. The full-day meeting focused on the test results from the DWR trial at American Airlines, and on the detailed differences between the new DWR software and the Direct-To software. The DWR software, including source code, was transferred to Boeing (non-exclusively) in July 2014. Boeing provided constructive technical questions and feedback related to the American Airlines trial results, and NASA provided insights into the DWR-Direct Routes integration. (POC: Dave McNally)
