Poster PDF (25.7 kB)
The Near Real Time MODIS processing system was conceived as a proof of concept program, and implemented under the Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) Central Satellite Data Processing (CSDP) contract. It was designed to provide NOAA with rapid access to environmental data from the TERRA and AQUA satellites, and to provide risk reduction for future high data rate satellite systems (NPP and NPOESS) by identifying the risks and problems associated with high data volumes and Near Real Time operations. This demonstration project has been running since 2000, and serves products to NOAA, NASA and military customers for operational use. This poster will discuss the challenges in data distribution for voluminous data sets in designing ftp servers, networks, and providing customer access.
