This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project is to determine the feasibility of leveraging existing weather and communication systems to provide location-specific, detailed, automatic, and continuous weather information nationwide to the general public. The project will determine the feasibility of using an existing nationwide communication system in a novel manner to augment regional weather broadcasts. It will also determine the features and capabilities that must be included to make the commercial system user friendly and autonomous.
