new requirements or maintain current research satellite capabilities. Therefore, the quality of NOAA operational forecasts and warnings will be compromised once QuikSCAT is no longer operating (it has already exceeded its design life span). Several workshop participants are advocating a satisfactory future OSVW satellite mission via the NOAA PPBES process and other available avenues within NOAA. Support from the Department of Defense (DOD) on such a mission could greatly increase the chances of it coming to fruition, but the level of DOD support is uncertain. The NOAA Hurricane Conference endorses the needs expressed in the report.

Recommendation:

Seek response from DOD to encourage joint NOAA/DOD advocacy for an OSVW mission.

Action:

Title:

Status of HDOBS Recon Messages (NOAA/AOC and 53 WRS)

Discussion:

To date, the USAF/53 WRS and NOAA AOC issue high-density observations under different WMO headers – SXXX50 KNHC (dummy header for USAF) and UR..40 KWBC (NOAA/AOC). Currently, implementation efforts are underway to retrofit the USAF WC-130J aircraft with SFMR instrumentation. Consequently, a need has been identified to transmit these products under similar WMO headers and utilize a standard format. These new formats will be issued under the following headers:
