AWIPS-II is a multi-phase project to develop a robust and extensible system to support the entire NWS enterprise mission needs. The first phase of this project is migration of the existing AWIPS functionality for the Weather Forecast Offices (WFOs) and River Forecast Centers (RFCs) to the AWIPS-II architecture. AWIPS-II employs a modern Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and is written primarily in the Java programming language. The migration is being conducted by Raytheon Technical Services Company (RTS) under the direction of the NWS Office of Science and Technology (OST) Systems Engineering Center (SEC) and is expected to be complete in 2009.
