The user side of AWIPS (the Advanced Weather Interactive Processing System) is called CAVE, the Common AWIPS Visualization Environment. The acronyms AWIPS and CAVE may be used interchangeably or together. They are usually referring to the same user interface. While AWIPS CAVE is installed on Windows in ASAC 315 and the Weather Center, the latest version 17.1.1, including support for new GOES-16 data, is only available on Linux.
Run CAVE from the menu Applications > Internet > AWIPS CAVE, or from the command line (Terminal), type:
cave and press enter.
There are several excellent online manuals to get started with AWIPS CAVE, all including screenshots:
