WSI Corp. has released WSI Fusion 2.2, an upgrade to its WSI Fusion application, an online service providing information on changing flight, airport and airspace conditions. New feature added includes tracking of global lightning information, tropical pseudo-radar imagery and projected aircraft positioning.
The new release helps operators identify areas of convection that may cause en route turbulence or icing, company officials said.
Version 2.2’s teaming of precise terminal and en route forecasts with flight-centric alerting provides early insight into critical flying conditions, officials said, adding, this results in operational flexibility, and ultimately, improved fuel planning.
WSI Fusion 2.2 upgrades include: Expanded satellite-derived pseudo radar depicts convective activity in the central latitudes, where traditional ground-based precipitation radar coverage is unavailable; expanded real-time lightning coverage from WSI’s Global Lightning Network (GLN); enhanced flight data interface supports flight data from sources other than traditional FAA and EUROCONTROL sources, enabling the tracking of airborne aircraft movements worldwide; extended airspace restriction, flight information, and flight projection capabilities for aircraft operators participating in the EUROCONTROL Electronic Flight Data (EFD) trial program.
