The National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) Central Operations (NCO) has been given the task of building the infrastructure and support services to house NOAA's Integrated Dissemination Program (IDP). NOAA's Integrated Dissemination Program (IDP) was established to transform the organization's 170+ web sites and 20 operational dissemination capabilities to an integrated enterprise-wide dissemination service hosted by the NCO at the College Park facility in Maryland and the soon to be built facility in Boulder, Colorado. The Meteorological Assimilation Data Ingest System (MADIS) was identified to be one of the first dissemination services to be moved to the IDP infrastructure. MADIS was developed by The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) Office of Atmospheric Research (OAR) and the National Weather Service (NWS) and extends NOAA's observational networks by collecting, integrating, Quality Controlling (QC), and distributing observations from NOAA and non-NOAA organizations. MADIS leverages partnerships with international agencies; federal, state, and local agencies (e.g. state Departments of Transportation); universities; volunteer networks; and the private sector (e.g. airlines, railroads) to integrate observations from their stations with those of NOAA to provide a finer density, higher frequency observational database to NOAA and the greater meteorological community. This oral presentation will focus on the operational effort and concerns to move the MADIS Initial Operating Capability (IOC) system into the IDP infrastructure.
