The Compression Relay Management System.
The Compression Relay Management System (CRMS) is the enabling technology of Gridded FX-Net/W4 application. CRMS provides and adaptable design combining data management, compression (including wavelet compression) and data transfer technologies through a central management system allowing users to transmit large amounts of geophysical data to remote systems. CRMS allows users to define custom compression parameters for specific data sets to help maximize data throughput on limited bandwidth. Gridded FX-Net/W4 is currently used operationally in support of Fire Weather by Geographical Area Coordination Centers (GACCs) and the National Interagency Fire Center (NIFC).
