1 Session 6: Way Ahead to Address MPAR Risk Reduction— Implementation Strategy and Interagency Management Approach Moderator: Dr. Paul D. Try, Science and Technology Corporation Panelists: Dr. Jeffrey Kimpel, National Severe Storms Laboratory, NOAA Mr. Bill Benner, Weather Group Manager, Aviation Weather Office, FAA Mr. Kevin ‘Spanky’ Kirsch, Director, Office of Special Programs, DHS

2 Session 6: Way Ahead to Address MPAR Risk Reduction— Implementation Strategy and Interagency Management Approach Primary Discussion Areas for Consensus  Sufficient Feasibility to Establish Risk Reduction Program  Implementation Strategy: Initial Priority Risk Reduction Areas: -- Technology Demonstration & Testing -- Multi-functionality and Testing -- System Costs – Business Case -- Trade Studies Demonstration Points & Early Results?  Interagency Management Approach -- Format: --- OMB/OFCM past NEXRAD process (OMB/OFCM-NPC/JSPO) --- Multi-Lateral Agency --- PD/Congressional Mandated -- Address Urgency Issues Overarching Requirements Identified Here (Further Detailed Rqmts to be Fleshed Out): (No Gaps; Improve Fcsts & Lead Time; Reduce L/C Costs; BU&NonCoop Surveillance)

9 Federal Research and Development Needs and Priorities for Phased Array Radar FCM-R Recommendation 1. The FCMSSR should endorse the concept of an MPAR risk reduction R&D program that substantially incorporates the objectives and the three components of the plan outlined in chapter 6. Recommendation 2. The FCMSSR should consider organizational options to foster collaborative and joint R&D on the MPAR risk-reduction activities by establishing a joint entity, such as a Joint National Center for Advanced Radar Research and Development, to manage agencies’ contributions to the risk-reduction program outlined in this report. Recommendation 3. For the period prior to operational standup of a joint management entity, the FCMSSR should direct OFCM to form an interagency MPAR Working Group (WG/MPAR) within the OFCM infrastructure to coordinate and report on the R&D activities of participating agencies in implementing an MPAR risk- reduction program. Recommendation 4. The FCMSSR should direct that, in conjunction with the MPAR risk-reduction program, a cost-benefit analysis be undertaken to establish the cost effectiveness of the MPAR option and competing domestic radar strategies. The basis for MPAR acquisition and life-cycle costs should include results from the technology development and test activities and the MPAR network refinement, as appropriate.
