The Unidata Program Center (UPC) at UCAR is working with the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) and the National Weather Service (NWS) to make available to Universities the AWIPS II software, development environment and source code. After a number of system modifications (removal of operation-specific components, reallocation of decoder resources, different data read/write arrangements) Unidata released an early beta in 2013. With the first official release imminent, this presentation summaries progress made by the UPC to make available a faster data server with a smaller resource footprint for use by the University community.
