Final Investment Decision (FID) to implement a NextGen Surveillance and Weather Radar Capability for ATC
- Type: Final Investment Decision (FID)
- Primary Roadmap:
- Description: Final Investment Decision to implement a NextGen Surveillance and Weather Radar Capability for ATC. This system would satisfy surveillance and weather detection requirements. It is a candidate to replace leacy ASR-8, ASR-9, and ASR-11 aircraft surveillance and TDWR and NEXRAD and other weather detection systems.
- Approving Authority:
Joint Resource Council
- Required Activities:
A JRC decision at Decision Point #78 to implement the NextGen Primary radar systems including weather surveillance
- System Impacts:
ASR-8/9 terminal primary radars would be replaced starting in 2018. ASR-11 may be replaced in 2025 based on DP #95.
Continuing ASR Windshear capability at 38 airports is dependent on DP #104 continuing to provide primary radar data feed to the Weather Systems Processor system.
