This seemed to be part R&D and part O&M. I
decided to include it because of Dave Novak's
leadership of these efforts. All regions should
have FTEs although how much is development
and how much is O&M is a challenge. $
leaving NOAA would be related to Raytheon

baselining tools). Selected mature but not
transitioning because of the very slow

Joint Hurricane Testbed Project


This project primarily involved the development
of conceptual models and forecast technques.
There does not seem to be an entry in the
function column that fits (decision support but
for forecasters?). There is some modeling
component to the project, but it is secondary
(e.g., 20% or less). Product lines also involve
tropical, winter, hydrology, and public, but most
of the work done in FY08 was related to severe
weather. Non-labor costs are travel to
meetings/conferences.
OAR and non-ER NWS costs likely fall under
more general NEXRAD Product Improvement
project (see OST). Non-labor costs are FY08
regional radar workshop held at PBZ
Put in near term since this project was a prep
type project for understanding what was
coming with dual-pol and 88D.

XEFS is a large effort dedicated to the
scientifically valid production of hydrologic
ensembles. In 2007 the "XEFS design and gap
analysis team" produced the roadmap
document that is guiding our research efforts.
Each component of XEFS is better understood
in the context of the umbrella project.
