(U) A. Mission Description and Budget Item Justification

(U) This effort is in Budget Activity 7, Operational System Development, because it supports software development and system tests associated with the upgrade and replacement of currently operational systems, systems already in production, and systems with approved production funds in the DoD budget. This program provides for the modification, sustainment, and acquisition of meteorological hardware and software needed to support the observing and forecasting needs of worldwide Air Force and Army operations. Efforts include: (a) Cloud Depiction and Forecast System II (CDFS II), replaces logistically unsupportable mainframe computers at the Air Force's Global Weather Central (AFGWC) and upgrades satellite data processing, cloud depiction and forecasting, and classified weather support functions for operational commanders and national programs; (b) Global Theater Weather Analysis and Prediction System (GTWAPS), acquires theater weather models and associated hardware to improve AFGWC's theater support capabilities; (c) Tactical Weather Radar (TWR), provides lightweight, portable Doppler weather radar to support combat operations worldwide; (d) Space Weather Analysis and Forecast System (SWAFS), replaces aging 50th Weather Squadron (AFSPC) hardware and software to move to a more open, efficient computing environment; (e) Meteorological Operations Capability (MOC), which builds upon weather systems successfully integrated into operational C4I systems and supports the "train as you fight" concept by assuring fixed and deployable systems are the same. (f) Satellite Data Handling System II (SDHS II) will retrieve satellite data and meteorological fields from a centralized data base to a graphical user interface capable of 3-D and 4-D visualization. Provides operators and commanders better situational awareness of conditions in their operating environment and battlespace.

(U) Change Summary Explanation:

Funding: Reductions in FY96 since the FY1997 President's budget are due to Congressional reductions ($-224), SBIRS ($-116), inflation adjustments

($-39), and rescisions ($-71). FY97 changes are due to Congressional reductions in the FY97 Appropriations Act , Section 8136, General Reduction of FY97 RDT&E ($-103), Section 8138 Cancellation/Recession of FY97 RDT&E ($-5), Section 8037 RDT&E ($-14), and Small Business Innovative Research ($-85). FY98 changes are due to AFMC zero based transfer ($-42) for mission support, ESC restructure of the Coral Convert Program ($-213), inflation adjustment ($-32), general reductions for O&M/AF supply ($-2) and WHS ($-1). FY99 changes are due to AFMC zero based transfer ($-37) for mission support, ESC restructure of the Coral Convert Program ($-223), inflation adjustment ($-40), general reductions for O&M/AF supply ($-3) and WHS ($-1).
