Optimize your operation in terms of cost, safety, comfort and lower emissions.
SIGMA is a tool that presents weather hazards (such as Icing, Turbulence, Volcanic ash, etc) to the pilots. The service is a real-time weather alerting system which communicates through ACARS and assures your pilots are notified to new meteorological hazards related to the actual route in the FMS. SIGMA uses the world’s most advanced forecasts based on the high-resolution models from the UK Met Office combined with AVTECH’s patented algorithms.
The service is tailored to only apply the parts of hazardous weather that affects the flight and the alerts are related to points in the flight plan instead of LAT/LONG. Warnings will also be issued in case of adverse weather changes en-route.
SIGMA is a quality service that presents high-resolution turbulence data and SIGMET weather hazards such as Icing, Thunderstorms, Volcanic ash, etc., to the pilots in the cockpit. The service keeps track of the aircraft position and 4D-trajectory to provide tactical updates on meteorological hazards related to the actual route in the FMS. This means the service will automatically pick up changes to the route and present relevant weather along the flight path.
The latest advances in weather forecasting has made it possible to predict the horizontal and vertical distribution of turbulence with high accuracy. AVTECHs connection to the aircraft and retrieval of the 4D trajectory makes it possible to process and deliver a tailored forecast to the cockpit in a pilot friendly format, providing effective decision support to avoid turbulence areas while reducing pilot workload.
