Fleet Numerical Meteorology Oceanography Center (FNMOC)

FNMOC is one of two primary computer processing centers of the Naval Oceanographic Command that operates global and regional meteorological and oceanographic analysis and forecast models. DMSP data is received by a subset of the Data Reconstruction System equipment located at Site 29. Domestic satellite communications links are demultiplexed and the DMSP data stream is extracted, deinterleaved, and decrypted before being transferred to the computing systems. Using conventional and satellite environmental and image data, FNMOC systems analyze and forecast atmospheric and oceanic conditions. Analyses and forecasts are used to create end-user products such as passive and active acoustic propagation conditions and ballistic wind and density forecasts.
