The Aviation Weather Research Program (AWRP) recently reorganized the NEXRAD Enhancements product development team (PDT) into the Advanced Weather Radar Techniques (AWRT) PDT. The reorganization extends the weather radar arm of AWRP beyond WSR-88D-only applications to include any appropriate radar system, including the Terminal Doppler Weather Radar and the ASR-9 radar. The AWRT now consists of four major laboratories: the National Oceanic and atmospheric Administration's National Severe Storms Laboratory and Environmental Techniques Laboratory, the National Center for Atmospheric Research, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Lincoln Laboratory.

This paper will explain the products now within the AWRT and how this reorganization changes the way radar techniques are developed and used, and finally, how the AWRT PDT will better serve the AWRP and its clients.
