The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is upgrading the systems used to collect and display weather information at its facilities nationwide, having awarded Raytheon and Harris contracts in 2015 to develop new processing and service delivery systems worth up to USD300 million.

The agency is combining several systems onto a common platform for use by planning controllers at terminal and en route facilities. Starting from 2019, existing systems – including the Weather and Radar Processor (WARP), the Integrated Terminal Weather System (ITWS), and the Corridor Integrated Weather System (CIWS) – will be available as one display instead of multiple screens.

Raytheon is developing the platform, known as the NextGen Weather Processor (NWP), under a USD77 million contract divided into several work packages. Displayed for the first time on the Raytheon Standard Terminal Automation Replacement System (STARS) at the ATCA convention in October 2017, NWP provides a common view of the entire US including Guam, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico.
