program provides meteorologists the tools they need to generate forecasts that save lives and protect property," said Matthew Gilligan, vice president of Navigation and Environmental Solutions at Raytheon.
They rely on the information this system provides, which is why we're always looking for ways to improve the accuracy and timeliness of AWIPS
Raytheon, 2016: AWIPS

RSIS is responsible for all aspects of AWIPS
Weather Forecast Office (WFO) software, from evolving it to address changing requirements to implementing the software within the AWIPS
incremental release approach," said Rodney P.
Several data fields (hail-size estimates, reflectivity at several different levels, and rotation tracks) were also supplied in real time to the operational AWIPS
at forecast offices in Norman; Fort Worth, Texas; and Tulsa, Oklahoma; for testing and feedback by forecasters to help improve the system.
program serves as the cornerstone of the National Weather Service's modernization program.
This is followed by how the proxy ABI products are generated and tested, including progress in our goal of introducing these products into AWIPS
II--the NWS's next generation of AWIPS
LAPS has been used operationally on the Advanced Weather Interactive Processing System (AWIPS
, Etherton and Santos 2006) since 1995, and both the traditional and new, variational versions of LAPS are being transitioned into the next generation AWIPS
-II; Raytheon 2013) for use in operations at the National Weather Service (NWS) Weather Forecast Offices (WFOs).
Navy TAC-4, as well as Internal Revenue Service SCRIPS and DPS, Bureau of Land Management ALMRS, National Weather Service AWIPS
, and Department of Agriculture FCIC.
Ultimately, inclusion in AWIPS
will allow enhanced interactive use of the high temporal resolution data.
, Larry's tenure on AWIPS
was longer than any other person, and his contributions to the success of AWIPS
stand out among all others.
That group developed and tested systems to bring observations and models together for operational forecasters, and in 1993 Sandy received the Department of Commerce Gold Medal Award for his efforts in the many-year development and nationwide implementation of AWIPS
