VigiAero: Weather Impact for ATM V2.0

Abstract

VigiAero is a webservice that delivers Weather Impact Prediction for Air Traffic Flow and Capacity Management. This service is dedicated to support the Flow Management Position operator for decision making in relation with hazardous weather.

VigiAero algorithm crosses ATM and MET information in real time to deliver a diagnosis on the impact of hazardous weather on the air traffic control capacity.

VigiAero is currently available for 2 phenomena on Europe: convection (thunderstorms) and Clear Air Turbulence. Convection is based on a multimodel approach developed by MetSafe.

The weather impact is computed every five minutes for each ATC sector for the next twenty-four hours. The impact is delivered as a severity level based on Eurocontrol/EUMETNET unified risk matrix.

The impact is delivered as a severity level based on Eurocontrol/EUMETNET unified risk matrix.

The pre operational trials of VigiAero started in June 2020 in DSNA Reims En route Control Center.

Service is available for the Europe region.

MetSafe proposes an access to global meteorological webservices for the aviation community through its cloud-based services platform. 

Access to data service delivers on a global scale regulated meteorological products, real time adverse weather service (radar, satellite) and numerical weather prediction products.

State of the atmosphere services (wind sand, SO2…) are also proposed based on COPERNICUS data.

Information is delivered through a SWIM yellow profile compliant API with ATM-grade quality of service.

MetSafe platform is powered by multiple meteorological sources. A partnership with MétéoFrance and Météorage ensures access to the latest state of art meteorological products.

Beyond provision of access to data, MetSafe provides tailored expert services such as extraction of meteorological information around the 4D trajectory or weather impact prediction for ATFCM.

Our meteorological webservices are used operationally to support various applications: Air Traffic Control Working position, Electronic flight Bag, fuel optimisation for airline.

MetSafe is based in ENAC Incubator, Toulouse.
