1 International Civil Aviation Organization Establishment of ICAO requirements for Space Weather Greg Brock Acting Chief, Meteorology Section ICAO Headquarters, Montreal 17 May 2011 WMO Cg-XVI Side Event – Global Preparedness for Space Weather Hazards

2 2 Contents Background Recent progress Future activities ICAO requirements for Space Weather – WMO Cg XVI Side Event – 17 May 2011

3 Background Year 2000: New air trans-polar routes opened up between North America and East Asia Later: Polar routes across the South Pole Today: Approx 8000 trans- or cross-polar routes per year (N and S Poles) Year 2000: New air trans-polar routes opened up between North America and East Asia Later: Polar routes across the South Pole Today: Approx 8000 trans- or cross-polar routes per year (N and S Poles) Polar trajectories are more cost effective for airlines – Shorter, more direct, long-haul routes – saving fuel and minimising environmental impact …and more convenient for passengers – Less time in the air Polar trajectories are more cost effective for airlines – Shorter, more direct, long-haul routes – saving fuel and minimising environmental impact …and more convenient for passengers – Less time in the air ICAO requirements for Space Weather – WMO Cg XVI Side Event – 17 May 20113
