The ISCS systems provide service to WMO Regional Association IV (RA-IV) and are managed by the US National Weather Service (NWS) Dissemination Systems Branch (W/DISS/DSB); they include:

  • GTS Internet File Service (GIFS)
  • GeoNetCast - Americas (GNC-A)
  • Emergency Managers Weather Information Network (EMWIN)
     

ISCS systems are an integral part of the RA-IV Regional Meteorological Telecommunications Network (RMTN), which focuses on the timely collection and delivery of both time-critical and routine watches, warnings, observations and forecasts.

Additional telecommunication systems are identified as part of the RA-IV RMTN which supplement the capabilities of the ISCS systems for the exchange of messages. These other systems include:

  • NWSTG FTPS Ingest Server [RTH Washington System]
  • Email Data Input Service (EDIS) [RTH Washington System]
