The Federal Aviation Administration FAA Bulk Weather Telecommunications Gateway FBWTG is a communications gateway to the FAA for high-resolution gridded weather forecast data e.g., Eta Forecast Model, Aviation AVN and Rapid Update Cycle RUC and airborne observation data e.g., Meteorological Data Collection and Reporting System MDCRS from the National Weather Service Telecommunications Gateway NWSTG. The FBWTG will provide the capability to simultaneously and continuously receive high-resolution gridded weather forecast data and MDCRS data from the NWSTG and disseminate this information to other National Airspace System NAS subsystems. The purpose of this plan is to provide an overview of the Operational Test and Evaluation OTE phase of System Testing for both pathways NWSTG to FBWTG located at the Air Traffic Control System Command Center ATCSCC, and FBWTG to National Weather Service NWS Filter Unit NFU-Test device located at the William J. Hughes Technical Center. To accomplish this objective, the FBWTG, an end-state subsystem, must be operationally integrated with NAS subsystems. This plan establishes test strategy, test objectives, test criteria, and detailed test and evaluation descriptions to be used in the generation of the Test Procedures and Test Reports entrance and exit criteria for the program.
