System requirement development
ARCON supported the FAA in developing the integrated terminal weather system (ITWS) requirement development. Our engineers helped to develop the weather messaging subsystem in the Mode-S program. We have the skills to analyze the weather data and develop the system requirements for given constraints.
Design, implementation and test
ARCON was the prime contractor for the Data Link Processor/1 (DLP/1) program and its predecessor, Weather Communication Processor (WCP) and worked on DLP/2. We also support FAA in the design, development, implementation and test of ITWS program. Our experienced engineers posses the know-how of weather processing for various applications.
Detection of micro-burst
Micro-burst is a major problem in weather. Detection of micro-burst is extremely important to avoid catastrophic events specially in air transportation systems where it could result in fatal accidents. Our engineers have performed in-depth research in weather modeling and micro-burst detection.
Weather communication processing
Communicating the observed and predicted weather patterns to display subsystems and other CDM subsystems at different locations along with other information is a challenging task. ARCON is involved in the research of capacity issues, formatting issues and accuracy concerns in communication processing subsystems.
