1 Information System Design as a key to NMS Modernization, PWS implementation and WIS CBS-WIS Seoul, Nov 07th, 2006 Patrick BENICHOU (Chairman)

2 Summary MFI company profile and strategic positioning MFI vision of Information System in relation to NMSs global modernization projects Meteofactory® as a powerful tool to set up effective PWS/EWS capability Central Information and Processing System and MFI views about WIS

3 1. MFI company profile and strategic positioning CBS-WIS Seoul, Nov 07th, 2006 Patrick BENICHOU

4 MFI company profile Created in May 2002 Subsidiary of Météo-France More than 20 years of experience in project management over 150 countries  Observation networks,  Airports,  Meteorological services Since 2002:  128 projects  61 countries

5 Our mother company, Météo-France 3700 meteorologists working in:  7 mainland regional centres  6 overseas territories  National Met College  Technical Directorates (Toulouse) ISO certified for all its activities Among top countries in NWP Self-developed Meteorological Information Systems Météo-France’s presence in the world Météo-France is involved in WIS (V-GISC) World leader for commercial income & cost recovery

6 Global projects with Meteo France International

7 2. MFI vision of Information System in relation to NMSs global modernization projects CBS-WIS Seoul, Nov 07th, 2006 Patrick BENICHOU

8 Infrastructure & Observation Capacity Building Meteorological Information Systems Consultancy Global Design PWS & EWS NMS Global Project essential components Integration

9 Typical Global Project with Meteo France International Typical global project overview (customer-driven approach): « from Observation to Services through Information System » ObservationInformation System Services to end-users

15 3. Meteofactory® as a critical tool to set up effective PWS/EWS capability CBS-WIS Seoul, Nov 07th, 2006 Patrick BENICHOU

16 Bridging DPFS (Data Proc. & Forecasting) and PWS Added value process  A general trend to get forecasters’ expertise in digital form (database forecasting & related verification)  A strong need for PWS / EWS to rely on human expertise as well  A willingness to provide users with detailed forecasts at county level A need to increase the number of products & users while keeping staff at reasonable level Hence concepts of « Forecast once Produce many »  Met Editor (routine work)  Awareness Map Editor (severe weather) … as a bridge between Forecasting and PWS / EWS activities

17 Met Editor (database forecasting)

18 AwareMet for severe weather management Setting up Early Warning Services as an integral part of PWS

19 EWS in Météo-France ( ) Procedure includes more & more players / stakeholders  Civil Security, Roads, Health, Hydrology, …

20 A large panel of end-users' communities More and more sectors are more or less dependent on weather. NMSs wish to deliver high numbers of tailored products and services to: … while keeping staff at same level Armed forces Civil security Sport events Tourism Media Sailing races Oil industry Agriculture Civil works Industries Energy providers Fishing

21 METEOFACTORY Maximize user satisfaction from IS Multimedia dissemination

22 Overview of METEOFACTORY Architecture The assistant forecaster is involved in the final production modules if they request human intervention. He can finalize end- products to sensitive users (TV, newspapers, big energy providers, …) or during special events (e.g. sport events).

23 Overview of METEOFACTORY Architecture The administrator ensures  Configuration of all modules and particularly DissMet (dissemination of the products)  Follow-up of the system A supervisor could monitor the work of all categories

27 Meteofactory® and Cost Recovery Meteofactory® PWS / EWS solution  paves the way to Cost recovery  gives visibility & credibility to NMS  Needed by all NMSs

28 4. Central Information & Processing System and MFI views about WIS CBS-WIS Seoul, Nov 07th, 2006 Patrick BENICHOU

29 CIPS inside Typical NMHS’ Information System HeadQuarters CIPS Central Information & Processing System SYNERGIE Forecasting System WEDIS Pilot Briefing Systems METEOFACTORY® PWS/EWS System CLISYS Climate System RADOME Data Collection System TRANSMET AMSS System PWS System G T S AMSS System Data Collection System NMS Policy Airports Regional / Provincial centres Forecasting System

30 CIPS : Central Information & Processing System What  Real time DB (obs, radar, sat, NWP, objects, …)  Archiving system (easy access),  Task scheduler (e.g. MOS),  Data browser (high level access),  High Performance Computing (e.g. Cluster) Why  Get a comprehensive & open Central Information System  Enable NMS to manage data and set up, test, schedule, run and supervise all relevant central operational tasks at HQ level Where  Any major main Centre How : joint MF-MFI development CIPS

31 CIPS data flow

32 CIPS in a Met service

33 CIPS typical H/W architecture

34 CIPS in Major NMSs : need for Back-up centre?

35 WIS Architecture (e.g. data dissemination) Source : WMO

36 V-GISC organization (source: ECMWF)

37 Central Information & Processing System Forecasting System Pilot Briefing Systems PWS/EWS System Climate System Collection System AMSS System PWS System GTS / WIS AMSS System Data Collection System Airports Forecasting System MFI Information System & WIS Headquarters Regional/Provincial centres GISC / DCPC W I S

38 MFI main views about WIS implementation Few IT systems to be impacted within NMS Info System  AMSS (long term only)  Central Information System (e.g. CIPS) : still need for national data management Some NMSs will have ability to act as DCPC NMSs need to keep full authority on  Data policy  Their own National Info System  PWS / EWS policy and related systems, incl. user access to data

39 CIPS in NMSs MFI contribution to WIS NMS data policy

40 CIPS & WIS A compatible architecture

41 CIPS : Smooth transition from GTS to WIS

42 MFI solutions may contribute to WIS

43 Executive summary CBS-WIS Seoul, Nov 07th, 2006 Patrick BENICHOU

44 Understanding IS priorities in most NMSs Top priority Forecasting systems (HQ, RCs) PWS / EWS(HQ, RCs) Pilot briefing (Airports) WAN / VSAT-VPN(all main centres) Priority 2 Data collection systems(HQ, RCs) Climate data management(HQ) AMSS (HQ, RCs) For Main NMSs CIPS(HQ, back-up centre) W I S

45 MFI & WIS summary MFI Information System  Comprehensive, proven, and scalable (HQ+RCs)  Implemented in various configurations through Global projects MeteoFactory®  a key solution for PWS / EWS at HQ/regional levels  Crucial in NMSs cost recovery policy whatever WIS implementation modalities MFI & WIS  WIS « spirit » anticipated through MFI’s CIPS solution  MFI supports NMS’ sovereignty and ability to set up data policies MFI with NMSs (« with you for weather »)  For short term full IS implementation  For mid-term WIS compliance, be aware of time scales and let’s have everybody on board… Thanks to WMO for invitation and…

46 thank you for your attention … see you around this week and … in Geneva next year!
