Unidata is happy to announce the Community Equipment Award recipients for 2012. Three institutions received funding this year:
- Iowa State University
- Valparaiso University
- University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee
This year special consideration was given to proposals that:
- Include installation of either/both THREDDS Data Server and RAMADDA to share data relevant to furthering Unidata's mission with the community at-large. This includes but is not limited to data from real-time IDD/LDM feeds, local observations, data from local modeling efforts, case study collections, and climate data.
- Include installation of a prototype AWIPS II EDEX server, to share data relevant to furthering Unidata's mission with the community at-large.

We received a total of five responses to the 2012 RFP and, as noted, funded three of them, partially or fully. We invite you to provide suggestions for the focus of future Equipment Award RFPs, and to keep your eyes open for the 2013 announcement.
