Avionic Weather Radar is an essential equipment in aircraft. Polarimetry can improve the detection and the classification of hydrometeors and thus the safety and the efficiency of the flight. Here a 3D polarimetric radar simulator for the feasibility study on avionic weather polarimetric radar is presented.

In this paper, the potential of an avionic polarimetric weather radar is shown. The simulator used for such a purpose is a statistical simulator capable of reproducing complex signals as those gathered by an onboard radar, along with polarimetric and Doppler observables. The simulator, developed in the framework of the CleanSky European program, can be an(More)
An algorithm based on a support vector machine (SVM) is proposed for hydrometeor classification. The training phase is driven by the output of a fuzzy logic hydrometeor classification algorithm, i.e., the most popular approach for hydrometer classification algorithms used for ground-based weather radar. The performance of SVM is evaluated by resorting to a(More)
Trajectory of civil aircrafts is typically optimized off-board and expressed in form of waypoints, i.e. latitude and longitude of significant points on the route, along with altitude and speed to be kept. Flight plans are pre-calculated before take off in order to optimize fuel consumption, using the information available from weather predictions. Changes(More)
