WeatherProfile V3.0


Fast and efficient extraction of global meteorological data around the 4D trajectory through webservice

The WeatherProfile service is designed to hide all the complexity of the meteorological domain: sources, format, availability...


WeatherProfile includes:

- An extraction of meteorological parameters (Wind, Temperature, Humidity, Pressure…) from multiple numerical weather models. This can be done either for each value on the 4D waypoints or on a dynamically user-defined corridor (buffer mode) around the 4D trajectory.

- An extraction of hazardous weather information from observation systems (convection by satellite, lightning detection...), OPMET (SIGMET) and numerical weather models (CAT, Icing, Convection).

- The best model feature: MetSafe platform is powered by several numerical weather models which can be global (GFS, GDPS…) or limited area high resolution models (ICOND2, AROME, …). The service automatically selects for the user the best data available around the location of the 4D trajectory among many weather models. 

- A diagnostic mode: This feature provides a quick JSON report on the intersection of hazardous weather with the 4D trajectory. The report indicates under a simple yes/no form the presence of hazardous weather for each leg of the 4D trajectory.

WeatherProfile responses are provided under JSON/GeoJSON format. 

This service is used operationally by fuel-efficiency solution and Air Traffic Management systems since 2018.

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.
