Second Symposium: Toward a Global Earth Observation System of Systems—Future National Operational Environmental Satellite Systems


IDPS Architecture

Joseph Mulligan, NPOESS IPO/NOAA; and K. Grant

The National Polar-Orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite System (NPOESS) Interface Data Processing Segment (IDPS) has been designed to meet the requirements laid out in the NPOESS Integrated Operational Requirements Document (IORD). The IORD requires the system to receive and store raw data, process the data into products, and make these products available to the Department of Commerce's (DOC) and Department of Defense's (DoD) Centrals. The IDPS will be deployed at the four weather Centrals: the Air Force Weather Agency (AFWA), the Fleet Numerical Meteorology and Oceanography Center (FNMOC), the Naval Oceanographic Office (NAVOCEANO) and the National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS). All IDP Segment installations consist of the hardware and software necessary to receive and process raw satellite data into Environmental Data Records (EDRs) identified in the IORD. The architecture has been evolving as we go through the NPOESS Preparatory Project development This poster will provide an update to that architecture including current processing performance estimates and results from the Build 1.3 demonstration.
