Implementing Partners

Leader: Romatsa


Upgrade Meteo service to provide reliable actual and forecast ICAO OPMET data in Weather Exchange Model (WXXM) format, wherever required across the ATM network. Development and implementation of a high availability hardware and software solution with distributed database and web services capable to providing access to MET information using WXXM and compliant with the iSWIM data formats. The pilot platform solution will be based on COTS (Commercial Off The Shelf) hardware and open source software (operating system, database, web application server). Demonstration and verification of the iSWIM implementation for MET information, using the standards and specifications defined in AF5 regarding the implementation of the new MET data model (FT5.4.1) for meteorological information exchange (S-AF5.4) and the information and exchange models and schemes of ICAO (IWXXM) and the EUROCONTROL/FAA (WXCM-WXXM-WXXS).
The implementation covers the standard MET products for the worldwide/ECAC civil airports: METAR, TAF and SIGMET.
