Abstract:

Develop a high-resolution data assimilation system that can provide an analysis of the atmosphere with sufficient details and accuracy that it can be used to support the Navy mission in threat detection, weapons, and weather safe operations. The system will utilize all available weather information, such as Doppler radar, in situ, and remotely sensed observations, to generate a detailed analysis of the atmosphere with sufficient accuracy to predict EMEO propagation and potential weather target conditions. This information can then be fed back to the SPY-1 radar and other weather systems, to give them lower threshold detection capability.
