NOAA Observing System Architecture
The NOAA Observing System Architecture (NOSA) is a collection of over 100 of NOAA's environmental datasets. It was established to develop an observational architecture that helps NOAA to design observing systems that support NOAA's mission, avoid duplication of existing systems and operate efficiently in a cost-effective manner.
- NOAA's observing systems (and others) required to support NOAA's mission,
- The relationship among observing systems; including how they contribute to support NOAA's mission and associated observing requirements, and
- The guidelines governing the design of a target architecture and the evolution toward this target architecture
