Identify new techniques, models, observing systems, etc. with potential for improving forecast guidance, via an announcement of opportunity and a proposal, review, and funding process.
Establish and maintain an infrastructure to facilitate the modification and transfer of research applications into the operational computing, communication, and display environment.
Complete tests in a quasi-operational environment of tools, techniques, etc. provided by funded researchers, with metrics for scientific performance, ease-of-use, and time constraints.
Prepare documentation, training, and performance evaluations of successfully transferred products to facilitate use and support in operations.
