Satellite-borne and IN-situ Observations to Predict The Initiation of Convection for ATM

Project description

Predicting extreme weather events

Improving the prediction of extreme weather events is a key objective of the aviation industry in order to eliminate unexpected scenarios that compromise safety. The EU-funded SINOPTICA project will set up an updated database of remote sensing-derived, global navigation satellite system-derived and in situ weather stations variables, to be combined with an automated assimilation system that will feed a numerical weather model. SINOPTICA weather forecast results will be integrated into air traffic management decision support tools in order to visualise weather information on the controller's display and to generate new 4D trajectories to avoid severe weather areas.
