Page 2 © Crown copyright 2007 SWIFT Background The efficient production of accurate weather forecasts Our Goal
Page 3 © Crown copyright 2007 SWIFT Background An increasing variety and quantity of data, such as numerical weather prediction output, satellite and radar imagery, and new observation types will need to be accessed as part of a continuous production cycle. The resolution and sophistication of these data will increase regularly and the forecaster workstation will need to maximise the usefulness of the latest research and development as it becomes available. To improve accuracy
Page 4 © Crown copyright 2007 SWIFT Background The forecaster workstation will enable the forecaster to collate all this information effectively and then produce output that is relevant to the current task. To improve efficiency
Page 5 © Crown copyright 2007 SWIFT Background Current constraints: Data Resolution is limited on Horace and Nimbus Horace (HPUX & Linux) and Nimbus (Windows NT) platforms have reached end-of-life (support, spares etc.) Horace and Nimbus are too inflexible to adopt a wider variety of data easily (e.g. new MSG data) The high cost of development of legacy systems and development of 2 parallel systems
Page 6 © Crown copyright 2007 SWIFT Strategy Merge our expertise with others to produce a world class Forecaster Workstation In so doing, share the costs of obtaining a next generation Forecaster Workstation Make use of existing scientific/meteorological components In so doing, save ‘re-inventing the wheel’ Seek also to develop a ‘Lite’ version, based on SOA In so doing, provide a flexible browser-based solution, suitable as a replacement for MOMIDS (Met Office Military Information Display System) and other distributed customers
Page 7 © Crown copyright 2007 SWIFT Options In 2005 the Met Office set up a European-wide competition to choose the new forecaster workstation software In April 2006 IBL Software Engineering was selected as the preferred supplier IBL is a software company based in Germany and the Slovak Republic that specialises in meteorological systems

Page 11 © Crown copyright 2007 SWIFT Solution is the product name of the new forecaster workstation (SWIFT is the name of the project to introduce it.) The solution consists of hardware, software, supporting infrastructure and service definitions. Will replace both the NIMBUS and HORACE systems with a unified system for all forecasting and observing staff. Includes: IBL Visual Weather (as the ‘foundation’) Extra functionality (the ‘gaps’ between VW & Horace/Nimbus) Variant to include extra military Tactical Decision Aids (TDAs) A ‘Lite’ version to provide a flexible browser-based solution Horace XP
Page 12 © Crown copyright 2007 SWIFT Solution – Part 1 Buy the IBL software and use it to replace HORACE and NIMBUS visualisation. Also use it to replace some other components of production. Merge our expertise with theirs to produce a world class Forecaster Workstation by adding some features of Horace and Nimbus IBL Visual Weather
