Abstract. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has been responsible for enabling The United States rapid responders during the hurricane season. Over decades of experience in enabling Rapid Response nationwide resulted in NOAA identifying the detailed engineering requirements for designing the next generation geospatially enabled airborne rapid response systems for aerial survey image capture, georeferencing, and high precision mapping. This paper is focused on presenting the state of the art, new trends, and the performance analysis of NOAA’s DSS version 6 for Rapid Response which development and testing took place in 2020/2021.
