Abstract:

A low-cost weather-contouring device was developed for use by the Air Route Traffic Control Center ARTCC high-altitude radar controller. The design and performance characteristics are given and the proposed Electronic Equipment Modification EEM are presented. It was concluded that the requirement to present contoured weather to the high-altitude controller positions can be met through the use of this low-cost device and it was recommended that this operational capability be considered for introduction into the ARTCC as a modification to the RBDE-5 system.
