In an effort to promote a broader awareness of emerging technologies in the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) observing system portfolio, the agency hosted its first-ever Emerging Technologies Workshop on July 27, 2016, in Silver Spring, Maryland. To capture the enormous breadth of NOAA observations, the workshop brought together NOAA researchers, analysts, and practitioners of systems - both traditional and nontraditional; both remote sensing and in situ - across the following four domains: oceans, atmosphere, terrestrial, and space. The workshop focused on showcasing and possibly infusing both sensors and platforms that could replace or improve current capabilities, lower costs, and fill current gaps within the next 3-5 years. This presentation will summarize the discussions, as well as highlight the key research, collaborations, projects, and efforts within NOAA’s community of emerging technologies.
