WX -AWIPS-Minuteman ASOS Tabular Data Misaligned

Analyzed

4

 

WX-AWIPS

AWIPS

The data is misplaced by two places from the data identifiers. It appears that there may be a missing placeholder or two in the data.

The Minuteman ASOS does not provide a full array of sensor data, only sky condition, visibility, and altimeter setting.

All other data should show an "M" for missing. The tabular display on AWIPS shows "M' on T, Td, and RH. It shows an "M@M M" for Mean Wind and "@M CLR 10" for Mag Wind. I think that may be where the problem lies. Sky Cover, Visibility, and Tower Visibility all show "M." Then Weather shows 30.01 the current altimeter setting) while MSLP shows "M" and Altimeter shows "RMK." Precipitation Rate shows as A02 and Remarks shows "PWIN0."

This problem was found by Mike Schmeiser, 30WS/SYS/RSA.

AWIPS Tabular Data display for DASS showing incorrect wind speeds. Wind speeds are unrealistically high. Either the DASS Tabular display has incorrect labels for wind speed units or the wind speeds are being calculated incorrectly. AWIPS graphical display of DASS appears correct.

WX-LINUX Connection between Linux Cluster and AMU Server

Assigned

4

 

WX-AWIPS

AWIPS

We need to set up a connection from the models server (Cluster) to the AMU server (ds1). The firewall will need to be modified in order to allow this connection. Currently the firewall does not allow any data to flow through these two devices. The Cluster will need to be able to push the data to the AMU server using FTP. The AMU server does not need to be allowed to get to the Cluster, the Cluster needs to be allowed to get to the AMU server. The Cluster also needs to be able to login into the AMU server automatically. The ftp session needs to be set up so the application gets into the AMU server without having to manually enter a login name or a password.

08 Aug 03, lmarr - During system s/w checkout it was discovered that when drilling down from the D2D window toolbar through [Tools], [Text Window], [AFOS Browser], the ability to display the TAF data under [Catagory] for military stations CCAFS and PAFB was unsuccessful. The TAF data is unavailable in both the AMU area and the RWO area. A telecon with Wx product support on 6 Aug 03 suggest a possible configuration issue.

07 Aug 03, lmarr - During AMU system checkout it was discovered that when selecting the [Atlantic] option under the [Scale] drop down menu there was no evidence of the Ascension airfield reporting station on the display. We looped through 32 frames of data and it never appeared up on the display window. It has since been verified to not be present on the RWO machines either. A telecon with WX product support on 06 Aug 03, suggest that it could possibly be a configuration issue type of anomaly.

All other labels/headings are present and displayed, only the 'Altitude' label/heading is missing.

WX-AWIPS

AWIPS

When trying to display ACARS, GOES and Model sounding data during FSL show and tell at the WR, products were not available for display. Also could not store text products. When investigating why, discovered some files were missing from directories and others were put in the wrong directories.

Text products file problem:

/data/fxa/workFiles/wanMsgHandling/siteCommission.txt missing

The following directories should be in awips/fxa/bin/mkdirs.csh:

Display of sounding data was inhibited because the BUFR decoder startup files were found in the awips/fxa/data directory instead of the data/fxa/workFiles/bufrDriver.config file

There is a problem with the way we provide tower level values in meters to AWIPS, which causes foot levels to be displayed inconsistently between D-2D pulldown displays, Volume Browser Plan View selections, tabular tower text and tall tower text displays.

in tall tower text display and Vol Br: 0, 7, 13, 52, 102, 167, 203, 299, 394, 492

WX-AWIPS

When loading profiler products after initializing a D-2D session, time from selection to display is greater than 10 seconds. It is not always the same product, but is always the first one requested to be loaded. In one instance the 50 data took 20 seconds to load. In another instance 915 data took 16 seconds to load. It seems to be random in nature.

WX-AWIPS Radar Composite Reflectivity Problem at ER

WX-AWIPS

AWIPS

When on the State scale and loading Composite Reflectivity under the Radar pulldown, and right clicking on the legend, the data disappeared and the D-2D display goes blank and then CONUS map appears. I can consistently produce the same results. This does not happen on the WR (version 5.1.2P).

Log file was captured and sent to FSL but not much help.

On another occasion while troubleshooting, it never loaded. Just got the Loading Composite Reflectivity message on the bottom left of the display. Didn't get far enough to get the date/time legend. I selected Restart Dead Panes and got the message "The system restarted one page. Please give it a few moments to initialize before trying to use it." Also the blank State scale reverted back to CONUS.

WX - AWIPS Briefing Tool

Assigned

WX-AWIPS

AWIPS

1) All Upper Air profiler and minisodar sites are listed by asset ID instead of asset name. 50 MHz has asset ID 525 of WR.

2) When selecting profiler or minisodar data from Upper Air pulldown, wind barbs are plotted on top of Range scale map. Barbs should be plotted on XY graph.

3) Tower labels are missing when tower plots are selected from Surface pulldown.

4) Set of available data pulldown selections in Briefing Tool is less than in D-2D. That may be as designed. Will 5.2.2 version contain density and magnification options?

5) When slide show is opened and title is selected (and OK selected), slide show dialog box does not appear on the left monitor (Xinerama configuration). It is not hidden behind the D-2D session either, but is an item in the tasklist. Default at WR had dialog box opening on the left monitor on top of the D-2D session.

6) No templates exist for ER logo and title page.

7) Only 4 template slides available for ER. All missile type folders contain the same 4 template slides so test case will have to be modified greatly. The ER templates are: 24 Hr delay forecast, launch criteria, ops forecast and vehicle expose. There are also center and left textlines templates.

8) I can't figure out how to get back to the point where I select ER or WR folder when creating new briefing so I can get at a specific missile type. I selected Shuttle the first time and now every slide show I create defaults to the Shuttle folder. I realize all tempates inside each missile are the same but I'd like to be able to select a different folder if I need to.

The template files for laps and mm5 in the current AWIPS release are hard-coded to the western range. These need to be un-hard-coded. I spoke with Darien and Brent at FSL, and they directed us to modify our installation script where it hard-codes the templates. This section of code should be removed from install-ds-step2-fxa:

Using Volume Browser, var-hgt, 20km, point A (placed on the N. VAFB 50MHz Profiler), Winds, 12 frames, I can only observe data in the last one or two frames, which appear at 15 minute intervals. Most of the earlier frames are devoid of data. If I also select temperatures, they show up at 15 minute intervals as well, but not concurrently with wind data. The temps appear to be wrong (much too cold at low altitudes), but are fairly consistent, with apparently linear plots, as the altitude increases.

WX-AWIPS: Looped MiniSodar data samples displayed inconsistently

Authorized

4

 

WX-AWIPS

AWIPS

When density is set to less than maximum, AWIPS displays MiniSodar data in an inconsistent manner when looping. Each frame still shows correct data, but the samples may be from different altitudes in each frame. This makes it appear as though the data values are changing. When density is set to maximum, this problem does not appear, but the number of data points makes it difficult to interpret the data without zooming into a small zone of the graphical depiction. Zooming makes it impossible to view the entire data series.
