Possible Near-Term Solutions to the Wind Shear Hazard 780572

The Federal Aviation Administration's Wind Shear Program has developed three potential near-term solutions to the aviation problems created by hazardous low-level wind shear. They include: development of a ground-based Low Level Wind Shear Alert System to detect and track shear through the terminal areas, development of a Hazardous Wind Shear Advisory Service in cooperation with the National Weather Service to alert pilots when strong wind shear conditions are going to affect airport operations and development of on-board displays to assist pilots in coping with shear during approach and landing. Each of the above potential solutions are reviewed.
