Interactive Processing System (AWIPS):
RPCCDS and Archive Level III
In addition to making Radar Product Generator (RPG) products available to NWS WFO staff, the Advanced Weather Interactive Processing System (AWIPS) also plays an important part in disseminating WSR-88D products out to other organizations. The AWIPS Wide Area Network (WAN) is used to send the Archive Level III products from each RPG to the Network Control Facility (NCF) in Silver Spring, MD. From there, the Archive Level III data are made available to other users through the Radar Product Central Collection/Distribution System (RPCCDS).
