NOAA's U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing System Office's Surface Currents Program is partnering with the NOAA National Environmental Satellite, Data, & Information Service and its Office of Common Services to transition the IOOS oceanographic High-Frequency Radar National Network's data assembly center "HFRNet" from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography's Coastal Observing Research & Development Center into the NESDIS Common Cloud Framework.  This transition of HFRNet is being performed in coordination with CORDC and the NOAA National Data Buoy Center with support from Tetra Tech companies RPS and Axiom Data Science.

The decision to migrate the data assembly center to NCCF was made by the IOOS Office, guided by feedback received from the >HFRNet Replacement Request for Information issued in August 2023. Work migrating functionality into the NCCF is underway, with an initial version anticipated to be operational before the end of June 2025.
