AWIPS II Technology Infusion is a multi-phase 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), referred to as AWIPS II. 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 AWIPS II Extended projects status and plans including:

· NAWIPS Migration – Migration of National Centers AWIPS capabilities into the AWIPS II SOA

· Thin Client – Allow AWIPS remote access to support Impact-Based Decision Support Services (IDSS) meteorologists and the Central Weather Service Units (CWSUs)

· Collaboration - Provide the ability to communicate NWS forecasts to our customers and partners more efficiently so that the appropriate response is generated

· Data Delivery – Develop operational robust infrastructure to support “intelligent” access to non-local data provider data sets

· Hazard Services - Provides more efficient information accessibility in support of IDSS

· NWRBMH - Migrate NOAA Weather Radio (NWR) functionality to existing AWIPS II infrastructure
