Abstract: This report is one in a series that documents the Weather and Atmospheric Visualization Effects for Simulation (WAVES) suite of models. Each volume describes an aspect of the models. This particular report describes the status of the software development that supports the WAVES suite of models. WAVES is a suite of atmospheric radiation models designed to calculate illumination and propagation effects for a given area. The U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) has developed the models over the past decade. The individual components of WAVES have reached such a level of scientific maturity that a formal software delivery plan is being undertaken. This work is particularly important given the Army's interest in integrating WAVES into large-scale Department of Defense simulators.
