NextGen Weather Processor - All Weather Display
Raytheon is helping to take the pain out of flying by building a weather processing technology and display infrastructure for use throughout the NAS. The NextGen Weather Processor (NWP) program delivers accurate, timely and improved weather information that benefits all U.S. travelers. NextGen Weather will replace existing weather processor systems and host new capabilities that better meet real time needs.
The NextGen Weather Processor (NWP) provides more accurate and consistent weather models, offering common benefits to stakeholders for tactical operations and strategic planning. Raytheon's NWP solution delivers weather benefits to NAS stakeholders and align with the FAA's NextGen weather vision through innovative and proven technologies leverages FAA Automation Systems and Decision Support Tools and take full advantage of integration into the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) 4 Dimensional Weather Cube, providing common benefits to weather stakeholders. Accelerating NextGen weather benefits now will help stakeholders improve operational efficiency early and ultimately save money.
The NextGen Weather Program is a critical part of NextGen as it helps reduce the impact of weather on aviation, resulting in safer, more efficient and predictable day-to-day National Airspace System (NAS) operations. NextGen Weather harnesses massive computing power, unprecedented advances in numerical weather forecasting, translation of weather information into airspace constraints, and modernized information management services. With this powerful combination, NextGen Weather can provide tailored aviation weather products within the NAS, helping controllers and operators develop reliable flight plans, make better decisions, and improve on-time performance.
