NOAA's ESPDS - NDE: The Operational Enterprise Ground Solution for S-NPP and Beyond
The ingest service currently collects 3.4 TB/day including over 90 products (Sensor Data Records, Temperature Data Records, and Environmental Data Records) from the S-NPP/Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS) ground segment. NDE's product generation function includes the integration of NOAA-developed product algorithms and tailoring services, providing file format translation, data thinning, filtering, and map re-projection. The current success rate for production is 99.96%. NDE distribution serves nearly 30 real-time users with more than 250 individual subscriptions, flowing 1 TB/day at a 99.73% success rate. These numbers are growing as new users and new algorithms are added. In the next year, the ESPDS enterprise system will evolve beyond S-NPP services to meet the demands of NOAA's users for other satellite products.
