About the ETW: In an effort to promote a broader awareness of emerging technologies in the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s observing system portfolio, the agency will host the Third NOAA Emerging Technologies Workshop at NCWCP in College Park, Maryland.

The workshop will include session devoted to technologies that are currently funded by NOAA, as well as session devoted to industry and academia. To capture the enormous breadth of NOAA observations, the workshop will bring together NOAA researchers, analysts, and practitioners of systems - both traditional and nontraditional; both remote sensing and in situ - across the following three topic areas:

  • Blue Economy: NOAA strives to strengthen the U.S. role in the Blue Economy by improving science-based management and sustainable use of ocean resources. To advance this goal, 2019 ETW sessions will explore technologies offering data insights that can support NOAA's sustainable development practices to generate economic growth and environmental stability and preservation.
  • Extreme Weather: NOAA strives to strengthen national resilience in the face of extreme weather events as a top priority. To advance this goal, 2019 ETW sessions will explore technologies offering observation capabilities and infrastructure that can enhance NOAA's understanding of weather variability, extreme events, and ecosystem processes.
  • Data Management and Analytics: NOAA is a science-based, data driven, organization. To advance this goal, 2019 ETW sessions will explore technologies, tools, and technique which advance data dissemination, discovery, and access, or which speed up or automate data processing and modeling. The workshop will focus on showcasing - and possibly infusing - sensors, platforms and capabilities that could replace or improve NOAA's current capabilities, lower costs, and fill current gaps within the next 3 to 5 years. In a series of ten-minute presentations, the workshop will highlight the key research, collaborations, projects, and efforts within NOAA’s community of emerging technologies.
