awips a brief history
AWIPS ABrief History
  • The original prime contract for system development was awarded to PRC, Inc on December 29, 1992
    • To replace Automation of Field Operations and Services (AFOS)
    • PRC, Inc later acquired by Northrop Grumman IT (NGIT)
    • Commissioned - 2000
  • Operations phase of original contract expired on September 30, 2005
  • Re-compete contract awarded to Raytheon Technical Services (RTS) on August 17, 2005
    • Proposal included a high level plan to re-engineer AWIPS software into a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), AWIPS II
awips ii technology infusion scope
AWIPS II Technology Infusion Scope

AWIPS II Technology Infusion (FY2005 – FY2015)

    • A long-term project which delivers a modern, robust software infrastructure that provides the foundation for future system level enhancements for the entire NWS enterprise
  • Phase 1: (FY2006-FY2011)
    • Migration of WFO/RFC AWIPS (AWIPS I) to a modern Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) infrastructure executed incrementally through a series of task orders
  • Phase II: (FY2009-FY2012) – AWIPS SOA Extension
    • Creation of a seamless weather enterprise spanning NWS operations
      • Migration of NAWIPS into the AWIPS ISOA
      • Delivery of thin client to support for the Weather Service Offices, Center Weather Support Units, Incident Meteorologists, (e.g., Fire Weather, backup support for RFCs and National Centers)
      • Integration of Weather Event Simulator)
      • CHPS Integration into AWIPS SOA
  • Phase III: (FY2009 – FY2015) – Enterprise Level Enhancements
      • Data delivery enhancements: “Smart push-smart pull”data access
      • Integrated visual collaboration
      • Information generation enhancements
      • Visualization enhancements
awips i to awips ii re architecture approach
AWIPS I to AWIPS IIRe-Architecture Approach
  • Perform “black-box” conversion
    • Preserve existing functionality, look and feel on top of new infrastructure
  • Thorough field validation and acceptance before deployment
  • No loss of functionality
    • Deployed system current with deployed AWIPS capability (i.e., OB9)
  • Use open source projects - No proprietary code
    • JAVA and open source projects enable AWIPS II to be platform and OS independent
  • Objective is to make AWIPS II available for collaborative development

awips ii primary standards formats
AWIPS II Primary Standards & Formats
  • Ingested Data Formats
    • GRIB1/GRIB2 – Gridded data
    • NetCDF3 – Support AWIPSI/II interoperability
    • BUFR – Observational Data, e.g., soundings
    • METAR, SHEF – Surface and hydrological data
    • GINI – Satellite Imagery
    • OPRG L3 – Radar Imagery
    • Text Messages – Text products
  • Data Store Formats
    • PostGres – Metadata and select data type store, e.g., text
    • HDF5 – Binary store for grids, imagery and select observations
  • Product Distribution
    • NetCDF3 – NDFD Grids
    • ASCII Text – Text products
awips ii extended data delivery overview
AWIPS II Extended Data Delivery Overview
  • Objective – Develop robust data delivery system within AWIPS II infrastructure that enables efficient access to high volume datasets
    • Address significant growth in data volumes, e.g., ensembles, GOES-R, NPOESS and mitigate impacts on SBN
  • High-Level requirements in common with NextGen
    • Data registry and discovery services
    • “Smart” push/pull technology
      • Sub-setting by user selectable space, time, and parameter
      • Complex retrievals, e.g., derived parameters, coordinate transformations, etc
    • Ad hoc and subscription services
    • Operationally robust – supports availability, latency and security requirements for operational users
  • Multi-Phase Implementation
    • IOC Focus – NWS data providers, e.g., NOMADS, MADIS, possibly with basic services only, discovery, sub-setting – Target FY12
