2015 Community Equipment Awards

Unidata is happy to announce the Community Equipment Award recipients for 2015. Five institutions received funding this year:

  • Plymouth State University
  • University of California, San Diego
  • University of Nebraska, Lincoln
  • University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee
  • Western Kentucky University

This year special consideration was given to proposals that:

  • Include installation of a prototype AWIPS II standalone EDEX server and CAVE client, coupled with the Unidata LDM, to test data ingest and display both locally, and using the CAVE thin client to connect to remote servers
  • Implementation of or pilot projects with remotely-accessible storage systems for geoscience data (“cloud-based storage”)
  • Implementation of or pilot projects with remote server-based data analysis or visualization systems (“cloud-based analysis”)

For additional details on the proposals funded this year, see the 2015 Equipment Awards page.

We received a total of nine responses to the 2015 RFP and funded five 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 2016 announcement. To get an idea of the wide range of recipient institutions and projects, including copies of successful proposals, visit the Equipment Awards page.
