NOAA/NESDIS/STAR has designed, developed, and implemented the GOES-R Algorithm Working Group (AWG) Product Processing System Framework. The Framework has been developed to be plug-and-play system for GOES-R scientific algorithms enabling the development and testing of the Level 2 Advance Baseline Imager (ABI) and the GOES-R Lightning Mapper (GLM) products within a single system. Fifty-six GOES-R ABI algorithms and one GLM algorithm have been integrated and run within the Framework. The ABI and GLM products have been tested within the Framework using proxy (GOES, MODIS, SEVIRI) and/or simulated data. The system has been created to run products and store them in memory to be used as inputs for other products: i.e. product precedence. Common ancillary data has been used by the algorithms and the ancillary data is also stored in memory and treated as precedence for the products. The Framework has been crucial as both a testbed for the ABI and GLM algorithms as well as the tool to create the ABI and GLM level 2 product test data sets that were a delivery by the AWG to the GOES-R Ground Segment Project. The Framework design and the ABI products run within the Framework shall be discussed.
