This report presents the results of the FAAs air traffic control ATC operational evaluation of an Airport Surveillance Radar Wind Shear Processor ASR-WSP which operated at Orlando International Airport MCO during the summer of 1992. The evaluation was conducted in order to obtain reaction to the ASR-WSP weather products and displays. It was concluded that the system is capable of meeting ATC operational needs and in general was rated as very useful. However, the accuracy of the gust front algorithm and to a lesser extent, the accuracy of the microburst algorithm are two features that the controllerssupervisors agree need some improvement.
