Total Turbulence software collects data from airliners.
WSI has developed and installed a system that allows airplanes to collect weather data that is difficult to predict or measure by other means, namely turbulence. Called Total Turbulence, the software has been integrated into several commercial airliners, which are automatically distributing the data to provide information to other aircraft.
The software has the potential to help prevent injuries to flight crews and/or damage to aircraft by alerting the pilots before they enter an area of turbulence.
