WSI To Launch Fusion 4.2 With Expanded Global Weather

Latest Version Improves Worldwide Tracking And Avoidance Of Flight Hazards

WSI (Weather Services International) said Tuesday it will soon be releasing WSI Fusion 4.2. The new version, which will be available by the end of January, further extends WSI Fusion's global weather and flight management capabilities for improved operational efficiency, safety and global decision-support.

"WSI Fusion enables operators to be aware of and stay ahead of disruptive, hazardous weather conditions. These capabilities keep flights and passengers safe and on schedule," said John Szatkowski, WSI Senior Product Manager. "With the addition of Australian and European Radar, both with precipitation type, this release offers the tracking and avoidance of enroute and terminal hazards on a world-wide basis.
 
Driven by user feedback, Fusion 4.2 delivers the following enhancements:

  • Australian Radar - Coverage of radar-based precipitation across the Australian continent, updated every 15 minutes. This further increases WSI's international radar availability.
  • European Radar with Precipitation Type - As an enhancement to the existing European radar coverage, users may clearly see areas of freezing rain and snow without having to overlay additional layers or reference additional sources.
  • In addition, Fusion 4.2 offers unparalleled options to streamline workflow and gain system-wide efficiencies. These include:
  • North American Radar Mosaic - Providing a comprehensive view of radar returns from Canada through the tropics, with recently increased coverage of Mexico and the Caribbean.
  • Active SUAs (Special Use Airspace) - Indicating which US Special Use Airspace regions are currently in use or reserved for the operational day.
  • Enterprise and Flight Planning Interfaces, including relevant Alerting - Integrating customer data from external sources to enable optimal flight following and routing choices.
  • Updated Web Based Training portal - An online training site that includes all of WSI's newest Fusion features.

WSI Fusion is designed to facilitate proactive operations management by providing early insight into changing flight, airfield and airspace conditions while streamlining the decision-making workflow. The solution combines global, public and proprietary weather information, airspace constraints, flight track information and navigation data, including NOTAMs, into a unified, clear operational picture, taking the guesswork out of situational decisions. Flight operators benefit through improved operational efficiencies and safety, especially during potentially disruptive weather events.
