RPG Build 12.3 Training
The Warning Decision Training Branch (WDTB) has provided training to support the RPG Build 12.3 deployment. There are two features of RPG Build 12.3 addressed in the training:
- New RPG status messages
- Automated Volume Scan Evaluation and Termination (AVSET)
The new RPG status messages will not be apparent unless your RDA has been upgraded to Dual Polarization. They are presented in this training only if they are noticed and operators are curious.
AVSET is the star of RPG Build 12.3! AVSET meets a long desired need for faster product updates. When the weather return is limited to the lower elevation angles, AVSET automatically terminates the volume scan early. This is dependent on both the depth of any weather the range from the radar. When AVSET is active, each volume scan is “dynamic”.
The training presentation in streaming format is available from this page for DoD, FAA, and NWS partners who wish to learn about RPG Build 12.3. The presentation takes about 15 minutes to complete.
