This report summarizes the results of an initial study to estimate the yearly delay reduction provided by the initial operational capability (IOC) Integrated Terminal Weather System (ITWS) at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL). Specific objectives of this initial study were to: (1) analyze convective weather operations at ATL to determine major causes of convective weather delay and how those might be modeled quantitatively. (2) provide estimates of the ATL ITWS delay reduction based on the "Decision/Modeling" method using questionnaires and interviews with Atlanta Terminal Radar Approach Control (TRACON) and Air Route Traffic Control Center (ARTCC) operational ITWS users. (3)assess the "reasonableness" of the model-based delay reduction estimates by comparing those savings with estimates of the actual weather-related arrival delays at ATL. In addition, the reasonableness of model-based delay reduction estimates was assessed by determining the average delay savings per ATL flight during times when adverse convective weather is within the coverage of the ATL ITWS. (4)conduct an exploratory study confirming the ATL ITWS delay savings by comparing Aviation System Performance Metrics (ASPM) database delays pre- and post-ITWS at ATL. (5) assess the accuracy of the "downstream" delay model employed in this study by analyzing ASPM data from a major US airline, and (6) make recommendations for follow-on studies of the ITWS delay reduction at Atlanta and other IOC ITWS facilities.
