DART is a weather-aware, runway-to-runway, superfast-time National Airspace System (NAS)/Air Traffic Management (ATM) simulation model.
DART can process a highly complex day-in-the-NAS scenario with 50,000 flights, major airports, their runways, weather-dependent runway relationships, departure/arrival procedures, hundreds of sectors, weather, reroutes, aircraft sequencing, spacing, delays, cancellations and a multitude of Traffic Management Initiatives (TMIs) in two minutes on a standard PC—i.e., many times faster than competing products, without sacrificing simulation accuracy. While other models pre-process sector and runway capacities as a stand-in for weather impact, DART evaluates the location and intensity of weather (forecast or actual) and, in addition to adjusting airspace and airport capacity, will create operationally realistic “pathfinding” for tactical weather avoidance. Significant effort is applied to ensure proper DART model validation vs. historical observations.
