NASA Satellite Products for AWIPS II

SPoRT "hybrid" GOES / MODIS visible image and NESDIS Hazardous Mapping System fire product displayed in AWIPS II.

Working closely with Jason Burks, the Information Technology Officer at the Huntsville NWS forecast office, SPoRT team members have developed several unique software components (plug-ins) to display NASA satellite data in the next generation display system, AWIPS II, being developed by Raytheon for the NWS. This software not only preserves data integrity and allows for an accurate display of NASA data in AWIPS II but also facilitates the development of advanced visualization displays, and muli-data set multi-band composite display tools. AWIPS II is schedule for operational deployment by the NWS in 2011.
