analysis and forecast products will be operated in real time and made available to partner stakeholders. Initially, 8 X-band radars from the CASA partners will supplement the existing WSR-88D and two TDWR radars (see Figure B.1), with the first 4 being moved to the DFW area from the CASA IP1 testbed in southwestern Oklahoma by late Fall 2011. It is expected that other observing assets will be provided or financed by other federal, state, and metropolitan agencies that will benefit from a densely observed urban complex. Additional partners may include instrument vendors and numerous local industries such as the transportation, media, defense, and energy sectors.
