To expedite the development of numerical weather prediction NWP systems, a national partnership National Unified Operational Prediction Capability NUOPC was established between NOAA and Navy to develop common software architecture for easy and efficient interoperability. The overarching goal of NUOPC is to accelerate the rate of improvement in the US National environmental prediction capability, focusing initially on the global model enterprise. Improvements in prediction capability are expected to result in better environmental situation awareness, severe weather warnings hurricanes, tornadoes, snow storms, better cost avoidance for weather sensitive industries agriculture, transportation, utilities, and defense, and better informed decision making for industry, defense and the general public. These goals will be achieved through model development under a common model architecture and other software-related standards in this project.
