HSU:

1. Update on slow performance of the ATCF for Hurricane Jose due to the large size of the A-deck: Acting HSU Branch Chief Mike Brennan and TSB Developer Craig Mattocks repaired and reduced the size of the A-deck for Hurricane Jose, which had become corrupted. More work needs to be done to streamline the surgery of ATCF decks in such situations.

2. Update on SHIPS print out for Hurricane Jose: The 'Get SHIPS' icon on the ATCF workstations runs the ${HOME}/bounceships script, which prints the data that resides in the ${ATCFSHIPS} directory on atcfsvr1 (retrieved from WCOSS). For Hurricane Jose (stormID = al122017), the SHIPS text files have been arriving 14 minutes to 2 hours after synoptic time during the past few days.

3. Anu Simon assisted HSU in running the Targeting program to plan reconnaissance aircraft flight tracks.
