The National Weather Service has been collaborating with the FAA and the airline industry to enhance the Aircraft Based Observations (ABO) received from commercial aircraft. These enhancements include increasing the number of regional commercial airlines providing aircraft based observations, increasing the numbers of aircraft equipped with the Water Vapor Sensor System and applying alternate technologies to down link the data to ground stations. The Poster session will review these enhancements to the NWS ABO program.
