As part of observing systems portfolio management, NOAA must identify and exploit new technologies for Earth and space observations which have the greatest potential societal benefit. NOAA’s Emerging Technologies Workshop (ETW) provides the nexus to bring together a diverse group of people from across NOAA and beyond to increase awareness of NOAA’s observation needs among those best positioned to provide solutions, and create opportunities for collaboration. The ETW affords an opportunity to showcase new technologies capable of meeting NOAA’s needs, including data analytic capabilities, and serves as a forum for discussing issues important to NOAA, particularly in the context of the agency’s observing systems portfolio. This poster will illustrate the overall framework of the most recent ETW, including the agenda structure, the analysis process for identifying NOAA’s most critical observing gaps to be publicly posted in a Request For Information (RFI), and the panel discussion on the process for transitioning new technologies into operations at NOAA.
