In 2016, NOAA will launch the first of the new generation of GOES satellites. GOES-R satellites will provide significantly improved imaging resolution and more timely updates to the weather community. As a result, the current GOES VARiable (GVAR) service will be replaced with the new-generation GOES-R Rebroadcast (GRB) system. The GRB signal's high bandwidth direct satellite reception will be a highly effective, lowest-latency, and highest-reliability solution for most users. Harris Corporation's WxConnectTM – GRB offers a modular and scalable access and product-generation solution that provides high availability and secure reception of enhanced environmental satellite data from the GOES-R satellite system in near real time. Harris Corporation's WxConnectTM – GRB is the primary source of direct readout GRB data for the NWS National Centers, and the NWS Alaska and Pacific Regional Centers. A full complement of GOES-R sensors including the ABI, GLM and Space Weather instruments will provide data to the mission critical AWIPS II systems at these centers. This poster will describe the WxConnectTM – GRB data access solution and the benefits this direct source of data brings to the NWS National Centers.
