The Community Satellite Processing Package (CSPP) supports the Direct Broadcast (DB) meteorological and environmental satellite community through the packaging and distribution of open source science software. CSPP supports DB users of both polar orbiting and geostationary satellite data processing and regional real-time applications through distribution of free open source software, and through training in local product applications. CSPP is funded through NOAA JPSS. While CSPP was originally developed to support the Suomi NPP satellite mission for JPSS, it has since expanded to cover the NOAA, Metop, and EOS Terra/Aqua polar orbiting satellites. Of particular interest is the inclusion of a range of multi-sensor multi-satellite algorithms developed by NOAA/NESDIS, including the MIRS microwave retrieval algorithm; the CLAVR-x imager cloud retrieval algorithm; the NUCAPS infrared/microwave retrieval algorithm; and the ACSPO imager sea surface temperature retrieval algorithm. This presentation will describe the range of products available from CSPP and the real-time applications for these products for several high impact users including the National Weather Service.
