Abstract:

Research and development of the Weather Systems Processor WSP is being accomplished in an effort to satisfy one of the Federal Aviation Administrations FAA performance goals in the area of System Efficiency, which is to develop and demonstrate the capability of new systems to decrease the rate of delays due to weather by 10 percent by the year 2002. This plan addresses the Massachusetts Institute of TechnologyLincoln Laboratory MITLL Demonstration Validation DEMVAL of the test bed WSP at their Terminal Radar Development Facility TRDF in Albuquerque, New Mexico. This DEMVAL began in November 1995, and will continue through 1997. The purpose of this plan is to provide an overview of the MITLL DEMVAL to assist the FAA with its DEMVAL monitoring responsibilities, and with future WSP Test and Evaluation TE activities, including Development Test and Evaluation DTE and Production Acceptance Test and Evaluation PATE monitoring and System Test conduct.
