Meteorological (MET) and Aeronautical information (AIM) are pivotal to the safe and efficient planning and execution of the flight. 18-04 is the SESAR2020 IR activity on improving the quality, consistency and exchange, and therefore the usability of the AIM and MET information by developing operational procedures to generate information when required and associated system capabilities including the required SWIM-based information service.
These services and underpinning capabilities developed will enable all relevant Solutions and trajectory operations in general by providing their required MET and AIM information. This will also include the initial studies of use of the aircraft as a 'MET-sensor'. The Solution is also responsible for developing services and applications for the use and integration of MET and AIM information on the flight deck in both the aircraft information domain3 and aircraft control domain which will significantly contribute to the overall performance and safety of flight and Operational Improvements identified.
The various improvements to address in 18-04 are different in nature and there is a clear need to manage the progress of the developments on AIM information, on MET information and on the use of this information in the cockpit separately. Three sub-solutions are therefore proposed:
- 18-04a: the grouped activities defining and delivering a verified AIM Information Service for identified Solutions that have a dependency on this AIM information
- 18-04b: the grouped activities defining and delivering a verified MET Information Service for identified Solutions that have a dependency on this MET
- 18-04c: the grouped activities defining and delivering validated prototypes for the use and integration of MET and AIM information in the aircraft information domain and aircraft control domain
In the scope of solution 18-04 LPS Linked Third Parties Microstep-MIS ltd. intends to contribute to development of MET information services as well as new capabilities for future MET service within the scope of 18-04b (if necessary) to meet the requirements of the MET related solutions in other SESAR projects.
