We are using this new development environment for the purpose of testing/evaluating changes to existing algorithms and the integration of new algorithms. One existing algorithm, the Anomalous Propagation Edit/Removal algorithm (APR), has already been modified and those changes will be reflected in an upcoming build release of CODE/ORPG. Two new algorithms are also being tested: Artifacts Detection and MIGFA (Machine Intelligent Gust Front Algorithm). The former intends to remove radar artifacts from the data such as solar spikes and constant-power "bulls-eyes". The latter is intended to provide important wind shear detections particularly to aid MIAWS airports. A discussion will be presented that highlights the use of CODE/ORPG in the development process, the availability of improved or new products, and the benefits of these products to various FAA projects.
