Latest Version Improves Worldwide Tracking And Avoidance Of
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
Driven by user feedback, Fusion 4.2 delivers the following
- 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
- 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
