Abstract:

LONG-TERM GOAL. Develop the capability for the Tactical Atmospheric Modeling System-Real Time TAMS-RT, an end-to-end on-scene analysisforecast system for real-time organic data assimilation, to produce atmospheric and tactical impact variables to forward-deployed forces. OBJECTIVES. Monitor and support TAMS-RT use at deployed locations world-wide and implement analysismodel improvements and bug fixes as identified by operators and RD testing. APPROACH. Monitor and support TAMS-RT in Bahrain and software provided for use by the NRL Data Fusion for Weather Assessment DaFWA project. Implement algorithms for tactically important physical parameters ceiling, visibility, and heat index in TAMS-RT and improve the vertical resolution of pressure-level output capability. Incorporate an automatic scaling factor for graphics and implement meteogram graphics for tactical weather parameters. Develop the capability to locally retrieve and analyze satellite-devised wind observations in TAMSRT. Enhance TAMS-RT to use a new multi-level nesting scheme to increase computational efficiency.
