The GOES ABI Ground Processing Development System (GPDS) illustrates that the ABI instrument's ground processing algorithms can be implemented and perform in real time. Raw ABI instrument CCSDS packet data (Level 0) is input into GPDS where it is decompressed, calibrated, navigated, and resampled to create images (Level 1B). ITT's GPDS implementation is currently in development but initial results demonstrate specification compliant latency with at least 28% margin.
