On December 10, small-scale infrastructure project of meteorological refined grid forecast operational capacity building (first phase) undertaken by China Meteorological Administration (CMA) was approved.

This project has completed the construction of 5 sub-systems like refined grid objective forecasting system, refined real-scene observation grid operational system, MICAPS-GFE, smart meteorological forecast processing, analysis and generation system, and refined grid forecast service platform. Some of the systems have provided basic forecast and real-scene products for nationwide 5-kilometer resolution and 1-10 day forecast at 3 hours intervals. MICAPS-GFE has realized seamless connection with CIMISS data environment and improved the efficiency of forecast making.

Since 2017, the project results have been put into operation in succession, and relevant software system has been deployed and applied in National Meteorological Center and provincial meteorological stations. (Dec. 18)
