Abstract : A project has been implemented to fabricate, deliver, and install a Meteorological Interactive Data Display System (MIDDS) at the United States Air Force's (USAF) Cape Canaveral Forecast Facility (CCFF), Cape Canaveral AFS (CCAFS), Florida. The MIDDS system will ingest special mesoscale meteorological data sources; merge them together into a gridded data base composed of a satellite, radar, and conventional meteorological observations; integrate the data into forms where they can be displayed alone or in conjunction with correlative data; and then display the required meteorological information quickly and easily for use by the CCFF forecasters. The MIDDS, a joint NASA and AF project, will significantly improve current capabilities, particularly during Space Shuttle landings where improved 0-3 hour mesoscale forecasts are required.
