Remote Oceanic Meteorology Information Operational (ROMIO)

The Remote Oceanic Meteorology Information Operational (ROMIO) Demonstration is a project sponsored by the FAA’s Weather Technology in the Cockpit (WTIC) program.  It is focused on analyzing oceanic aviation inefficiencies in current or future NextGen operations caused by gaps in either the available meteorological information or in the technology utilized in the cockpit.  Using an operational demonstration to uplink convective weather products into the cockpit of domestic airlines, this effort helps to identify and analyze operational gaps. 

In 2018, the WTIC ROMIO team began the operational demonstration with Delta Air Lines, United Airlines, and American Airlines. Following the ROMIO Operational Plan, all aspects of the demonstrations were carefully planned and included the availability and ingest of meteorological data sets, the creation of weather products, their dissemination to the aircraft and their display.
