The Technology, Planning, and Integration for Observation (TPIO) Program has an array of tools for assessing the impact of NOAA’s observing system architecture. These tools are under continual development in order to meet a growing array of requests from NOAA’s senior leadership. For instance, the NOAA Observing System Integrated Analysis (NOSIA-II) model has been enhanced with Office of Marine and Aviation Operations (OMAO) data on executed Days at Sea (DAS) data for NOAA ships. Additionally, TPIO has combined satellite-relevant Consolidated Observing User Requirement List (COURL) requirements with corresponding products from NOSIA, in order to support the NOAA Satellite Observing System Architecture (NSOSA) study and the Satellite Needs Working Group (SNWG). These and other improvements will be the focus of this presentation.
