Frequentis facilitates change to weather data model to meet updated ICAO standard
Frequentis smartWeather release 6 fully supports requirements for updated ICAO Meteorological Information Exchange Model (IWXXM)
The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has mandated that from November 2020 weather information must be provided in ICAO meteorological information exchange model, IWXXM, as well as in traditional alphanumeric code (TAC) format. The machine-readable message format will facilitate information exchange for controller tools and automation systems.
The mandate to support IWXXM modernises meteorological information in harmonisation with other XML based information exchange models including aeronautical information exchange model (AIXM) and flight information exchange model (FIXM).
