Abstract

The National Weather Service (NWS) is responsible for ensuring that the U.S is a weather ready nation. The mission of the NWS focuses on protecting the lives and property of those in the U.S, while also enhancing the national economy. The number of high-impact weather events have increased over the past decades, suggesting a need for a more effective NWS. This paper focuses on improving the NWS by following the systems engineering approach and using system architecting principles.
