NOAA/NESDIS/STAR has designed, developed, and implemented the GOES-R Algorithm Working Group (AWG) Product Processing System Framework. The framework has enabled the development and testing of the Level 2 Advance Baseline Imager (ABI) and the GOES-R Lightning Mapper products within a single system. Fifty-six GOES-R ABI algorithms and one GLM algorithm have been run within the framework with product precedence. Since the AWG algorithm development phase has been completed, the framework is currently being used to continually test the twenty-five baseline algorithms on new proxy and simulated datasets. The output from these data runs are compared to “truth” data for algorithm validation.

The framework was designed and developed as a plug-and-play type system with the scientific algorithms. This enabled an algorithm to be developed and/or tested in both the framework and the scientist's offline research system with little to no modification or addition to either system. The future plans are to expand the framework processing capibility by modifying the GOES-R AWG algorithms to create products from GOES and Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) data. The design details of the framework, algorithm processing, and the future algorithm implementation plans shall be discussed.
