Continuous Operational Real-Time Monitoring System (CORMS)
In April 1998, NOS' Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services (CO-OPS) implemented the Continuous Operational Real-Time Monitoring System (CORMS). CORMS is now the primary system for real-time QA/QC efforts in CO-OPS. The primary mission of CORMS is to perform thorough and robust QA/QC on all real-time data, systems, and products in the CO-OPS domain, ensuring that a reliable source of real-time data is readily available, while not disseminating data of questionable quality. CO-OPS Data are available to the users in real-time (or near real-time) via various online graphical plots, simple text data, as well as telephone voice response. All data and products are monitored and reviewed on a 24x7 basis, automatically and by experienced CORMS operators working on 12-hour shifts. When a system and/or data problem is detected, CORMS either remedies the situation or forwards the information to the appropriate field technicians and/or IT personnel to enable corrective action.
