The Technology Improvement and Development Strategy for NEXRAD
It is expounded that NEXRAD product improvement (NPI), operation upgrade projects, and their current situations. Further more the NEXRAD network science infusion plan and the strategic directions for WSR-88D in the period 2007—2025 are introduced. NPI includes setting up open system, developing new algorithms, building Common Operations Development Environment,and studying the integration method of various radar data, et.al.. NEXRAD update projects contain TCP/IP communication,base data distribution scheme,and radar system equipments.The science infusion plan and strategic directions tell that the NEXRAD will develop to high spatial-temporal resolution and data synthesis applications. Some Opinions are put forward for China weather radar network operations support, products development and data application, and new technology study and evaluation.
