  • DO-369 - Guidance for the Usage of Data Linked Forecast and Current Wind Information in Air Traffic Management (ATM) Operations
  • Advances in aircraft equipment combined with satellite-based navigation and other supporting technologies provide the basis for more precise aircraft scheduling and spacing in Air Traffic Management (ATM) operations. Based on the opportunity for more precise aircraft scheduling and spacing, new and upgraded ATM concepts are being developed and implemented. The objective of these new concepts is to increase airspace capacity and lower energy consumption and emissions while maintaining and promoting aviation safety. The degree of accuracy of a predicted aircraft flight path relative to its actual flight path is based on many factors including the impact of the forecast and current winds and temperatures. The dynamic nature of the atmosphere, however, causes inaccuracies and uncertainty in the quality of wind and temperature information (both forecast and current) used in support of ATM operations. Without quality forecasts and current wind information, the precision in predicting flight path scheduling and spacing will be reduced and the achievable throughput in capacity-constrained airspace will be less than what could be attained. Therefore, newly developed Next Generation Air Transportation System tools and procedures would be less effective or even not used during periods of congested air traffic. This document examines the impact of wind information on three ATM operations: wake mitigation, Required Time of Arrival (RTA), and Interval Management (IM); and provides guidance in the form of findings and recommendations on the use of wind information and related airspace procedure impacts based on previously and newly completed studies. The guidance covers the reporting and recommended quality of wind information determined necessary to support the three ATM operations. The findings and recommendations provide initial considerations for trade-offs and compromises by industry and the Federal Aviation Administration (and potentially other Air Navigation Service Providers) when developing the concepts and procedures for implementing (or upgrading) wake mitigation, RTA, and IM operations. This document also provides an overview of and findings related to the use of current sources of wind information used by the aircraft and ground systems in supporting the three ATM operations. In addition, recommendations for future work are included to cover additional factors impacting the quality of wind and temperature information used in supporting these ATM operations as well as other operations not covered such as Dynamic Required Navigation Performance and Traffic Aware Strategic Aircrew Requests.
