The NOAA National Weather Service (NWS) currently provides forecasts and weather information, weather watches, warnings and other emergency messages to the public and emergency managers through the NOAA Weather Radio (NWR) and Weather Wire Service (NWWS) networks. The primary purpose of these systems is to reliably deliver All-Hazard emergency warnings to those people most immediately at risk, with sufficient lead time to allow them to take action to reduce the likelihood of property damage, injury or death.

The objective of the NOAA Weather Wire System (NWWS) and NOAA Weather Radio (NWR) Broadcast Message Handler (BMH) systems are to update and modernize current National Weather Service dissemination systems to meet current and future stakeholder missions, requirements and needs.
