Fleet Numerical Meteorology and Oceanography Center (FNMOC) or “Fleet Numerical” for short, maintains a primary mission to provide the highest quality, most relevant and timely worldwide Meteorology and Oceanography support to U.S. and coalition forces from its 24/7 Operations Center in Monterey, Calif.
FNMOC’s world-class suite of high-performance supercomputers running meteorological and oceanographic models, satellite processing and display capabilities, and product distribution systems enable this critical mission.
But all that is only significant because of the world-class team of dedicated military and civilian personnel at Fleet Numerical. Our team consists of renowned experts in meteorology, oceanography, computer science and Fleet operations who provide computerized weather and ocean prediction products, weather satellite imagery products and related tactical decision aids and data, supporting virtually every combat platform and weapons system operated by the U.S. Navy.
We are proud ‘Fleet Numericans’ and fortunate to serve our nation in this capacity. We strive for supercomputing excellence for Fleet Safety and Decision Superiority. We hope you will find what you need here, and thank you for visiting Fleet Numerical.
Naval Research Laboratory Monterey (NRL Monterey) The Marine Meteorology Division is part of NRL’s Ocean and Atmospheric Science and Technology Directorate, which contains six divisions performing broadly based scientific research and advanced technology development in the fields of marine geosciences, acoustics, oceanography, marine meteorology, remote sensing and space science - covering the bottom of the ocean to the top of the atmosphere to meet identified and anticipated needs of the Navy and Marine Corps.
NRL Marine Meteorology Division conducts a research and development program designed to improve the basic understanding of the atmospheric processes and the atmosphere’s interaction with the ocean, land and cryosphere; to develop and implement automated analysis, prediction and weather interpretation systems for DOD users; and to study the effect of the atmosphere on Naval weapons systems.
