The NEXRAD Radar Product Generation subsystem has been replaced with open systems compliant software and hardware (ORPG). This system upgrade is enabling the operational implementation of new scientific applications to improve the forecast and warning missions of the NEXRAD agencies. Several capability enhancements have already been implemented on ORPG and more are in progress for near term implementation. This paper describes the functionality of these enhancements and the process by which they are developed, tested and deployed.
