  • New forecasts will be integrated into ARINCDirect flight planning tools
  • Increases safety for operators in Southern Europe, the Middle East and North Africa

Rockwell Collins is integrating regional sand and dust storm forecast information into the company’s ARINCDirect flight planning tools, enabling business aviation operators in those areas to improve safety and on-time performance.

"Over the past 15 years, a number of factors have resulted in an increase in the frequency, intensity and operational impact of sand and dust storms in the Middle East and surrounding areas,” said Bob Richard, senior director, ARINCDirect for Rockwell Collins. “Integrating high-resolution forecast information into our flight and international trip support services will provide safety and performance benefits for business aviation operators in the region.”

The data used by ARINCDirect is sourced and exclusively licensed from the Barcelona Supercomputing Centre, host of the first World Meteorological Organization’s Regional Specialized Meteorological Center with activity specialization on Atmospheric Sand and Dust Forecast, the Barcelona Dust Forecast Center for the EuMEA region. The data has been used by government authorities for air quality monitoring, as well as industrial and aviation interests.

Rockwell Collins is exhibiting this week at the MEBAA Show in Dubai.  Stand No 421 (December 6th to 8th).

ARINCDirect provides business aviation operators with the single most comprehensive portfolio of flight support solutions in the industry including cabin connectivity services, flight planning, regional and international trip support and flight operations management.
