ASTM publishes performance standard F3673-23 for weather data interfaces

International standards body ASTM F38 committee has published the Standard Specification for Performance for Weather Information Reports, Data Interfaces, and Weather Information Providers (WIPs) framework.

This performance standard addresses the criteria for weather information reports, analyses, and services delivered by a Weather Information Provider (AIP) to support extensible traffic management systems, Unmanned Aircraft Systems, and Vertical Takeoff and Landing (VTOL) systems operating within the range of the surface to 5000 feet (1524 meters) above ground level (AGL).

One objective of this specification is to standardize and align across Civil Aviation Authorities (CAAs) globally, promoting consistency in subject matter compatibility with standards established by other Standards Development Organizations (SDOs).

This specification provides an initial version to provide guidance to commercial aviation operations including, but not limited to, UAS and VTOL users, for weather measurements and analyses. Research and development activities will continue to inform and lead to modifications to this specification.
