Abstract:

Our goal is to develop a high-resolution shipboard data assimilation capability that can provide the Navy with improved analyses and forecasts of the atmospheric conditions with sufficient detail and accuracy for supporting the Navy mission in threat detection, weapons, and weather safe operations. The data assimilation software will utilize all available weather information, such as Doppler radar, in situ, and remotely sensed observations. The software will run efficiently and generate a detailed analysis of the atmosphere with sufficient accuracy to predict Electro-MagneticElectro-Optical EMEO propagation and target area weather conditions. This information can then be fed back to SPY-1 radar and other weapon system operators to improve detection capabilities.
