FAA Seeking Ideas For Cloud-Based NextGen Weather System

CloudThe Federal Aviation Administration is seeking industry feedback on whether or not it is possible to place its next generation air traffic control system in the cloud, Nextgov reports.

According to official documents, the FAA wants to know the risks and benefits of placing the NextGen weather system on an infrastructure-as-a-service cloud model.

Air traffic controllers will use the new weather system to view weather patterns and developing a national strategy for navigating planes.

The program, which was reportedly over schedule, is intended to include GPS tracking capabilities in air traffic control.
