PROACTIVE MANAGEMENT OF WEATHER DATA ADDS RESILIENCE

This Solution was formerly  part of PJ.04-02-W1

Efficient airport operations rely on users having access up-to-date information. This situational awareness can be enhanced to provide pro-active management of airport performance to monitor, manage, and learn from operations. This candidate solution aims at increasing the resilience to meteorological events through anticipated and proactive management of their impacts on the airport operations plan (AOP). Total airport demand-capacity balancing (A-DCB) is achieved through the pro-active assessment of the available total airport capacity and the most up to date demand information, taking into account the prevailing and forecast weather information.

The main aim of enhanced MET performance management is to minimise airport disruption to take-off or landing caused by weather events. Decision support functionalities are used to proactively manage the impact of weather on the AOP, and propose pre-defined solution scenarios. Local and/or network-based business intelligence, machine learning and ‘what-if’ should support this whole decision process and will be evaluated to determine where those could increase overall benefits.

Since the candidate solution is about pro-active management of meteorological impacts, the accuracy of the meteorological forecast is critical, as this is the base for impact assessments, ‘what-if’ analyses, etc. The required support includes dynamic information about the uncertainty of the weather forecast, provided by probabilistic interpretation of weather forecasts.
