Catastrophic Backup Action Plan Recommendations for short-term corrective action involving selected shortfalls (Go after “low hanging fruit”)
Shortfall: An OPC is down with a Catastrophic Outage Consequence: Somebody isn’t getting something they need to do their job. Solution(s): Another OPC picks up the slack, even if degraded. Basic and in-depth alternatives (some). Lead Agency: Usually, the newly providing OPC. Risks: Bandwidth; data conversion costs for recipient; other priorities for assigned personnel. Resources: Not extensive. Varies with shortfall. Time Frame: Generally, 6-12 months for each.
Shortfall #1: NWSTG Gateway Down for GTS A/N Data Consequence: No WMO obs to NCEP. No American WMO obs to AFWA, NAVO, FNMOC. Solution(s): Directly feed NCEP from AFWA. Take steps to find other American data sources. Lead Agency: AFWA. Risks: Availability of personnel resources. Resources: 3 M/M (AFWA, FAA, NWSTG) Time Frame: May-Aug 2002.
Shortfall #2: NESDIS Down – Unable to Transmit Imagery Consequence: No imagery to NCEP/WFOs. No digital data or imagery via SPP. Solution(s): Collect imagery via Mark-4B &/or FMQ-17 systems; post on Web and xmit via SPP. Lead Agency: AFWA. Risks: Bandwidth to AFWA/FNMOC; data conversion costs, personnel availability. Resources: 4-8 M/M + NCEP data conversion costs Time Frame: Jun 2002 – Sep 2003.
Shortfall #3: No Standard Access to OPC Web Pages Consequence: No common quick access to OPC Web pages. Solution(s): Standardized access across all OPC Home pages. Lead Agency: FNMOC. Risks: Failure to agree on acceptable standard. Resources: < 1 M/M combined for all OPCs. Time Frame: Jun – Aug 2002.
Shortfall #4: No Ocean Color Backup for NAVOCEANO Consequence: No optical products; impacting minehunting, diver OPS, lidar bathymetry, etc. Solution(s): NOAA send subsets of MODIS sensor data to NAVOCEANO. Lead Agency: NAVOCEANO. Risks: Software access, data conversion costs. Resources: < 1 M/M + data conversion costs. Time Frame: Apr- Aug 2002.
Shortfall #5: NESDIS Down – Unable to Provide SDRs/EDRs Consequence: SDRs/EDRs unavailable to numerical models and variety of other customers. Solution(s): AFWA provide expanded GOES Feature Track Winds and some EDRs from DMSP. Lead Agency: AFWA. Risks: Reduction of current data volume/types. Resources: 3 M/M + data ingest costs. Time Frame: Jun-Dec 2002.
Shortfall #6: FNMOC Outage – NAVOCEANO Needs Backup Winds Consequence: NAVO Ocean Current models won’t execute properly without real time winds. Solution(s): Provide AVN &/or MM5 winds and related fields from NCEP &/or AFWA. Lead Agency: FNMOC. Risks: Availability of required fields; data conver- sion efforts; incompatible regional geometries. Resources: 5 M/M. Time Frame: Apr 2002 – Feb 2003.
Shortfall #7: FNMOC Outage – AFWA Needs Backup SST Anal Consequence: AFWA models won’t execute properly; no SST source at AFWA. Solution(s): NAVO provide SST analyses from MODAS direct to AFWA. Lead Agency: NAVOCEANO. Risks: Data format or geometry incompatibilities. Resources: 1 M/M + data conversion costs. Time Frame: Apr – Aug 2002.
Shortfall #8: AFWA Down - Need Flight Plan S/W NOGAPS Feed Consequence: ACFP and CMARPS revert to Climatology if no global model data. Solution(s): B/Up NOGAPS/AVN data flow from FNMOC/NCEP direct to Scott & Langley AFBs. Lead Agency: FNMOC. Risks: Resources to adopt AFWA bundling scripts. Resources: 3-4 M/M Time Frame: Jun – Nov 2002
Recommendations (1)Continue to pursue solutions as briefed to all eight shortfalls. (2)Adjust Plan as reality and resource availability dictates. (3)Add/delete shortfalls as needed.
