Abstract : This report describes a multi-faceted effort to support PL/GPD in the development and application of state-of-the-art analysis techniques for remotely sensed data. The resulting tools, techniques, and data sets support the improved analysis of archived data as well as current and future geophysical parameter acquisition and analysis. The following tasks are addressed: (1) development of cloud data sets to support cloud forecast model development; (2) further enhancements to cloud analysis algorithms and development of data sets to support several DoD infrared sensing missions; and (3) upgrades to the Air Force Meteorological System (AIMS) to add GOES-8 reception capability and an improved relational database.
