The Automated Meteorological Data Acquisition System (AMeDAS) is a meteorological ob-servation system comprising approximately 1,300 stations scattered throughout Japan. It is operated by the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) to gather weather data such as amounts of precipitation, wind direction and speed, air temperature, sunshine duration, and depth of ground snow. Quality-Assured and statistically processed observational data are used for issuing weather warnings and advisories as well as weather forecasting at JMA, and disseminated throughout Japan via JMA's Automated Data Editing and Switching System (ADESS), while some of this data is also provided to Asian and other countries via the same route. Having secured a commission from JMA for a system upgrade at the AMeDAS Center in FY20I5, Fujitsu is currently engaged in system development. This paper describes some of the initiatives involved in the system upgrade. They are performed from the perspective of operational continuity in the case of portable data collection platform (DCP) precipitation recorders, which allow observation work to quickly recover from the impact of typhoons and earthquakes. One initiative enhances work efficiency by automatically detecting abnormal data fragments. This paper also presents accounts of the maintenance system which we at Fujitsu offer to ensure stable, round-The-clock operation of the system, involving our systems engineers in charge, relevant product departments, as well as support and sales teams.
