Currently, Robert DeMaria is providing programming support for a wide variety of projects. Primary programming languages include Java, Python and IDL and FORTRAN. Projects include the Joint Hurricane Testbed where algorithms are being transitioned to operations at the National Hurricane Center (NHC) in Miami, research related to preparation for the next generation of geostationary environmental satellites and preparation of graphics for meteorological training and research publications. Recent accomplishments include performing code optimization that resulted in a 6x speed up of a new NHC hurricane wind probability product and assisting with the generation of a large database of simulated satellite imagery for the development of fire detection algorithms.
