The U.S. Naval Research Laboratory has developed and demonstrated several tools for measuring atmospheric and ocean parameters to help predict the weather.

NRL presented numerical weather prediction models and sensing systems at the U.S. Navy‘s annual Trident Warrior sea trial exercise held from July 13 through 18, NRL said Wednesday.

“These numerical experiments demonstrate, in real-time, the impact of the observations on tactically relevant environmental features of the ocean battlespace environment,” said James Doyle, NRL mesoscale modeling section head at its marine meteorology division.

During the tests, NRL scientists used the instruments to compile  air and ocean data observed from unmanned aerial, surface and underwater vehicles.

The Navy holds the annual event to evaluate naval technologies and gather warfighters’ input early in the procurement process.
