NAWIPS is going to be replaced by AWIPS2 at NCEP..therefore GEMPAK as we know it will be going away. I don't have my notes in front of me but I believe after NAWIPS 5.11.1, there will be no new enhancements from NCEP, just bug fixes. NAWIPS functionality is scheduled to be fully into AWIPS2 by 2010 and then NAWIPS wil be longer. AWIPS2 contract is being handled by Raytheon. It is supposed to be based entirely on open source, but is Java and Java Script based.
