Abstract : The improved version of the Three-dimensional wind field (3DWF) model, which originally was developed on a Linux operating system, allows the model's initialization either by the user's initial wind inputs and using high-resolution terrain data sets from the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission, or by the use of the wind profiles from the weather research and forecasting mesoscale model outputs. In recognizing the convenience of operating the model and its graphical user interface (GUI) applications on a more compact and popular platform such as Windows, or on mobile devices such as Microsoft's and Google's tablets and smartphones in support of the Soldiers and researchers in isolated areas, the US Army Research Laboratory's microscale modeling team recently made some significant efforts to migrate the 3DWF model from the Linux mainframe computer to the Windows desktop and mobile platforms. This report documents the finished product of the Windows version and the up-to-date efforts as well as the required processes for the transition of the 3DWF model and its GUI to Google's Android platform.
