  • Meeting ObjectivesDevelop a plan forproceeding with developing additional data formats: a prioritized list with assigned organization & completion date for eachwhich data sets can be published as part of the FY10 IT Demo and by whomDiscuss issues with decoders as related to the 4-D Wx Data Cube and develop a plan with dates for resolutionGain a mutual understanding of high-level schedule of 4-D Wx Data Cube activities through the end of FY11Gain a mutual understanding of objectives and current planning status for the FY10 IT DemoGain an understanding of significant issues and concerns

  • Major Activities/Milestones Through End of FY11

  • Design ReviewThe 4-D Wx Data Cube Team has decided to schedule a Cube Design Review early in CY10The purpose is to conduct an in depth look at all aspects of the development efforts including:ArchitectureRIsReg/RepService AdaptersThe Design Review will be discussed this Thursday

  • FY10 IT Demonstration ObjectivesUtilize: NOAAnet & FTI to communicate between NOAA & FAApresumed elements of operational architecture to the maximum extent possibleMaximize products published by NOAA & FAADemonstrate a SAS-like capability (manual & automatic)Measure & report communications & processor performancePublish NEVS dataImplement security measures Utilize appropriate standards

  • FY10 IT Demonstration OtherUtilize a simulator to make requests for data in order to exercise the softwareClearly separate non-Cube functionality from Cube functionality Develop our own front end (separate from ADDS)Develop and exercise more rigorous testing, followed by a demonstration

  • Product Format & Publishing DiscussionFormatsSome formats have been developed; others are under developmentGoal is to plan, through end of FY11, for developing formats beyond those already completed or plannedincluding which organization is responsible for which product formats, and when they will be completedPublishingGoal is to decidefor the FY10 Demowhich products will be published and by whom

  • Decoder DiscussionWednesday, November 18Scope of Decoder DiscussionWhat Decoder-Related Problems Should Be Anticipated?Based on experienceBased on foresightWhat Standards Apply (OFCM, WMO, )?Differing standards versionsDealing with overlapping standardsLegacy Systems TransitionDecoder Metadata & Need for ConsistencyExample: Site Identification InconsistencyRules (what is allowed, not allowed?)Example: METAR remarks fieldExample: Concatenated messages

  • Decoder Discussion - continuedWednesday, November 18Local TablesOther Decoder Challenges (Input from Group)GovernanceDefinition and establishment of governanceLeveraging existing governance bodiesAuthoritative (oversight) and technical (execution) layers neededNeed for ongoing interagency collaboration a long-term activity Next StepsVery near term (e.g., FY10) and beyond FY10
