Kristina Sprietzer, Science and Technology Corp., Suitland, MD; and P. Haggerty and G. Legg
The NOAA/NESDIS MODIS Near Real Time system was designed under Computer Sciences Corporation's (CSC) Central Satellite Data Processing (CSDP) contract. The system processes data globally, with 10 product suites for the MODIS instrument data on both the TERRA and AQUA satellites.

This poster will present the highlights and applications of MODIS near real time data such as monitoring smoke dispersion of forest fires, and the performance of a near real time system in terms of data transfer and product generation.
