HazCollect Project Develop a system that allows approved and authenticated external emergency managers at the Federal State and local levels to submit messages for broadcast over NOAA Weather Radio (NWR)* for the purpose of warning or informing the public. Develop a nationwide capability to streamline the current manual creation, authentication, and collection of all types of non-weather emergency messages in a quick and secure fashion for subsequent alert, warning and notification purposes. * expanded to include NNWS and NWS Gateway driven dissemination systems
Current System Shortfalls for Transmitting Non-Weather Messages • Not adapted to National warnings • Manual Security and Authentication process • Time consuming • Error Prone • Requires significant WFO staff intervention

Development Test & Evaluation (DT&E) – 6/05 Phase IIIFinal Operational Capability (FOC) Final software/hardware plus fixes identified in Phase I and II. Formal testing all products created and disseminated. DT&E – 7/05 Operational Acceptance Test – 8/05 Deployment National System Capability Deployed – Winter 05/06
HazCollect Development Players Organizations/Contractors identified to develop the HazCollect system through the phases.. Battelle: Develop the HazCollect Central Server (HCS) to interface with the DMIS system and AWIPS infrastructure. Responsible for verifying DMIS meets the HazCollect security requirements of Authentication and Authorization. Will provide O&M support. FSL: Develop and modify AWIPS code to ensure automatic dissemination of NWEM through the AWIPS existing dissemination system. NGIT: Ensures the AWIPS infrastructure i.e. Network Control Facility (NCF) system interfaces with the HCS.Develop any changes to the NCF to ensure full system integration of the HCS. Integration testing and technical support. NWS Gateway: HazCollect Location and Operations Support NWS: Program Management/System Engineering Center
