Abstract : Develop and implement a fully coupled global atmosphere/wave/ocean/land/ice prediction system capable of providing daily predictions out to 10 days and weekly predictions out to 30-90 days. Initial Operational Capability is targeted as 2018. Predictions will provide environmental information to meet Navy and DoD operations and planning needs throughout the globe from undersea to the upper atmosphere and from the tropics to the poles. The system will be implemented on Navy operational computer systems, and the necessary processing infrastructure will be put in place to provide products for Navy fleet user consumption.
