The Aviation Weather Division (ANG-C6) consists of meteorologists, engineers, human factors scientists, and other professionals who research the impact of weather-related constraints on the National Airspace System (NAS) and aviation stakeholders and explore mitigations to reduce these weather-related impacts.
This work is accomplished through the development of new weather products and/or information and includes translating and integrating current and emerging weather information into Air Traffic Managers' (ATM's), pilots', dispatchers', and airport operators' decision-support processes and tools.
ANG-C6 coordinates activities associated with these initiatives with FAA operations, safety and standards organizations, airlines and pilots, the National Weather Service (a component of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration), and the commercial weather provider sector.
ANG-C6 branches include the following:
- Weather Research
- New Weather Concept Development
- Weather Engineering and Evaluation
- Policy and Requirements
