AWIPS II Technology Infusion is a multiphase program. The first phase is the migration of the Weather Forecast Offices (WFOs) and River Forecast Centers (RFCs) AWIPS capabilities into a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). The migration is being conducted by Raytheon Technical Services Company (RTS) under the direction of the NWS Office of Science and Technology (OST) and is expected to be complete in 2011 with deployment targeted to begin by the latter part of 2011.

The subsequent phases of AWIPS Technology Infusion, known as AWIPS II Extended, include several projects that will improve technological capabilities of AWIPS II in order to enhance the NWS enterprise and improve services to partners.

This paper summarizes the AWIPS II Extended projects and reports on their status.
