Beyond provision of meteorological core SWIM services, added values lie in the integration of MET and ATM through SWIM.
» Extraction of weather information around a flight trajectory
Such a service allows to anticipate and integrate weather phenomena (wind, temperature, hazards…) into the flight trajectory management for both air (i.e. Electronic Flight Bag ) and ground applications (i.e. Flight Plan Data Processing system).

» Translation of weather into impacts and warnings for the Air Traffic Management community
In presence of adverse weather conditions, the ATM capacity per sector can be dramatically decreased. To overcome limitations of the current practices (particularly ICAO regulated SIGMET product), we process state of the art meteorological forecast and real time weather information to provide early warnings on loss of ATM capacity per sector.
The goal is to support ATM planning and near real time decision making.
