A machine intelligent gust front algorithm for Doppler weather radars
Gust fronts generated by thunderstorms can seriously affect the safety and efficiency of airport operations. Lincoln Laboratory, under contract with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), has had a significant role in the development of two Doppler radar systems that are capable of detecting low altitude wind shears, including gust fronts, in the airport terminal control area. These systems are the latest generation Airport Surveillance Radar, enhanced with a Wind Shear Processor (ASR-98 WSP) and the Terminal Doppler Weather Radar (TDWR).
