Abstract

This paper presents the Weather Forecast User-oriented System Including Object Nowcasting (WxFUSION), an integrated weather forecast system for air traffic. The system is currently under development within a new project named “Weather and Flying” under the leadership of the Institute of Atmospheric Physics (IPA) at the German Aerospace Center (DLR). WxFUSION aims at combining data from various sources, as there are weather observations, remote sensing, nowcasting and numerical model forecast data, in order to extract specific information on target weather objects like thunderstorms, icing, or areas with heavy snow fall. The target weather objects are pre-defined including user requirements. The paper gives a short overview on the concept of the system and on-going work.
