Abstract : The objectives of this report are: (1) to document the results of a series of demonstrations of STEP technology to representatives of U.S. Government agencies and non-government organizations (NGOs), and (2) to expand on considerations of the impediments to the use of STEP technology with respect to DoD's stated mission. As part of this task this report reviews current capabilities for obtaining weather satellite data from different servers on the Internet and its implications for the use of direct readout in the classroom. The remainder of the report provides a discussion of the dual-use of satellite direct readout for K-12 education. (AN)
