This subcommittee emphasized the need for more information in the form of a wind shear model with statistics on important parameters. The conclusions are summarized as follows: (1) The committee requested more analysis of the JAWS data to provide information to be used in design of flight control, flight director, and wind shear warning systems. (2) The committee recommended that FAA require airframe manufacturers, in conjunction with avionics suppliers, to evaluate the algorithms and logic of flight director and automatic flight control systems on the present fleet of transport category aircraft. (3) The committee requested that JAWS data be provided to enable radar systems to be designed to provide early warning of wind shear conditions.
