Abstract:

Our goal is to develop a short-term high-resolution data assimilation capability that can provide the Navy with improved analyses and forecasts of atmospheric conditions with sufficient detail and accuracy for supporting the Navy mission in threat detection, weapons deployment, and weather safe operations. The data assimilation system will utilize all available weather data, such as Doppler radar, in situ, and remotely sensed observations. The system will run efficiently and generate a detailed analysis of the atmosphere with sufficient accuracy to predict target area weather conditions. This information can then be fed back to weapon system operators to improve detection and strike capabilities.
