Weather and Radar Processor (WARP)

The Harris Weather and Radar Processor (WARP) is used to generate radar data for air traffic controller displays and delivers weather data to critical subsystems. Deployed in the U.S., the WARP Maintenance and Sustainment Services (WMSS) II contract provides hardware and software maintenance, a 24/7 user help desk, engineering services and continued sustainment to align the system with future weather initiatives.

Helping the FAA Find the Best Routes Around Bad Weather

WARP has undergone a major technical upgrade that provides the FAA with robust, flexible hardware, new service-oriented architecture (SOA) capabilities, and an excellent opportunity for future growth. NextGen Network Enabled Weather (NNEW) is on the near horizon. WARP’s current and future capabilities present an efficient and cost effective way to achieve NextGen weather goals.
