MetSafe, DSNA and France Aviation Civile Services teamed up in 2019 to speed up innovation in the ATC room.
Initial R&D activities for VigiAero have been funded through two SESAR ENGAGE projects.
Post-Ops analysis has been performed based on real time observation by MeteoFrance (Satellite convection) and Meteorage (Lightning detection).
Operational validation in the ATC room has been performed starting summer 2020: 16 FMP operators trained on VigiAero and provided daily operational feedbacks.
Through operational validation in the ATC room, VigiAero was validated for weather awareness and reached the objective of delivering actionable data for FMP.
