User Systems - Principal Users
Principal users are members of the governmental agencies which own the WSR-88D. Principal users access Radar Product Generators (RPGs) directly through either dedicated or dial-up connections. Each principal user employs different display systems. For instance,
- The NWS uses the Advanced Weather Interactive Prodcessing System (AWIPS),
- The DoD uses the Open Principal User Processor (OPUP; see image above), and
- The FAA has a variety of display systems, including the Weather and Radar Processor (WARP) and the Integrated Terminal Weather System (ITWS).
