10-10:30 a.m.   Q&A Session at Raytheon Booth #109
    Introducing AWIPS II: Enabling a Weather-Ready Nation
    Don Berchoff, Director of the Office of Science and Technology (OST) of NOAA's National Weather Service
     
    The next-generation of the National Weather Services’ (NWS) Advanced Weather Interactive Processing System (AWIPS) is now operational at the Omaha Weather Forecast Office. AWIPS II plays a critical role in the ability of NWS forecasters to make increasingly accurate weather, water, and climate predictions and to dispense rapid, highly reliable warnings and advisories that save lives and safeguard property.
     
    The focus of this interactive Q&A session is to highlight the exciting enhancements of AWIPS II, and how they are enabling the forecaster mission both now and in the future. The new AWIPS II software architecture will help fulfill the NWS strategic goal of moving affordably towards a "Weather Ready Nation". The system’s Software-Oriented Architecture (SOA) was designed by the need for agility, deployment flexibility, technology refresh, affordability, bringing new science to operations, and real time performance.

10-10:30 a.m.   Q&A Session at Raytheon Booth #109
    Introducing AWIPS II: Enabling a Weather-Ready Nation
    Don Berchoff, Director of the Office of Science and Technology (OST) of NOAA's National Weather Service
     
    Effective Dec. 8, 2011, NOAA's new Advanced Weather Interactive Processing System (AWIPS II) began field operations at the NWS Omaha forecast office, and is scheduled for operational deployment throughout 2012. The focus of this interactive Q&A session is to present and demonstrate exciting innovations and new technologies, developed in OST and enabled by the AWIPS II Services Oriented Architecture (SOA), and how they are enhancing the forecaster mission both now and in the future. The new AWIPS II software architecture is designed to help fulfill the NWS strategic goal of moving affordably towards a Weather Ready Nation. The AWIPS II SOA is a new clean sheet architecture designed by the need for agility, deployment flexibility, technology refresh, affordability, bringing new science to operations, and real time performance.This event will showcase the extensibility of the system’s SOA beyond weather and climate service delivery, with an evolution toward an environmental knowledge management and decision assistance platform.
