Update to the National Weather Radar Testbed Radar Control Interface
217A (Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center)
Significant improvements have been made to the National Weather Radar Testbed (NWRT) Radar Control Interface (RCI) over the past year to support research operations. The "look and feel" of the RCI has been modified to improve human-computer interaction. New process control functions have been implemented to better notify the operator of problems, allowing them to take corrective actions in a more timely manner. New processes have been added to simplify the building of scan control files, called "Stimulus Files", and integrating them into the system.
This paper describes in more detail the improvements to the RCI.
