WX1 - an expert system for weather radar interpretation
This paper describes work performed by M.I.T. Lincoln Laboratory for the Federal Aviation Administration to investigate the use of expert system techniques for weather radar interpretation. The design of WX1, a prototype system for recognizing low-altitude wind shear hazards from Doppler weather radar data, is presented. The WX1 system consists of a rule-based expert system coupled to an object-oriented image processing package. Initial results for recognition of two types of low-altitude wind shear are provided.
