Different Perspectives on TAMDAR


(Note: Some information on Weather Programs seems to blur, depending on the site and the degree of public access. Here are two examples with links to the original sites)

What is TAMDAR?

TAMDAR (Tropospheric Airborne Meteorological Data Report) is the result of several NASA sponsored aviation weather safety initiatives.

The goal is to design, build, and fly an inexpensive instrument that would measure meteorological variables from commuter aircraft flying to small and medium size cities.

It is anticipated that TAMDAR will result in more accurate weather forecasts and reduce aircraft accidents and delays.

What is TAMDAR?
TAMDAR (Tropospheric Airborne Meteorological Data Reporting) is a new, high-resolution atmospheric observing system. The TAMDAR system comprises a patented multi-function atmospheric sensor installed on commercial scheduled aircraft, a near real time satellite data communication system, and AirDat's ground-based data processing and distribution systems. High-resolution continuous TAMDAR observations fill in the gaps in conventional atmospheric data to create more accurate weather forecasts.
