GAMA-1 Technologies Highlights NWSChat 2.0 Monitoring & Cloud Innovations at Meteorology Symposium

Greenbelt, MD – January 25,  2024

January 31, 2024, American Meteorology Society Annual Meeting, Symposium 12, 3 PM – GAMA-1 Technologies is eagerly gearing up to present their latest achievements in cloud support services, especially the enhanced monitoring of the NWSChat 2.0, at the American Meteorology Society Annual Meeting.

NWSChat 2.0, a substantial upgrade from the previous “NWS Chat” system, became operational across the National Weather Service (NWS) in August 2023. This advanced messaging and chat system is crucial for real-time, two-way communications between NWS and its numerous partners.

The National Weather Service Office of Dissemination has spearheaded an initiative to develop a robust, 24×7 monitoring and response framework for all applications in the Dissemination cloud system, prominently featuring NWSChat 2.0. This initiative marks a significant enhancement in ensuring high availability for all operational, mission-critical applications.

GAMA-1 Technologies, under the guidance of authors Faizan Jamil (GAMA-1), Diwakar Puthalapat (GAMA-1), Kari Sheets (NWS), Noel “Shad” Keene (NWS), Drix Tabligan (GAMA-1), Michael Doria (GAMA-1), Marvin Cruz (GAMA-1), and Charles Ekeanyanwu (GAMA-1), has played a pivotal role in this transformative process.


The team successfully integrated multiple tiers of IT support, leveraged cloud-native monitoring tools, and automation, and developed innovative solutions to ensure the continuous and effective operation of NWSChat 2.0.

The symposium attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the challenges faced and best practices developed while establishing a robust 24×7 monitoring solution. This solution supports tens of thousands of NWS partners and is crucial for the uninterrupted dissemination of vital weather information.

GAMA-1’s presentation will underscore their commitment to operational excellence and continuous improvement in cloud support services. Their efforts in enhancing the reliability and functionality of NWSChat 2.0 exemplify their dedication to innovation in the realm of cloud technology and IT support.
