GOES DATA COLLECTION SYSTEM (DCS)

KAY METCALF, GOES DCS PROGRAM MANAGER

NOAA/NESDIS

OFFICE OF SATELLITE DATA PROCESSING AND DISTRIBUTION


What is dcs

WHAT IS DCS?

Data Relay System Used for Transmission from Ground-Based Sensors through Satellite to Receiving Station.

Carried on board NOAA Geostationary satellites since 1970’s.

System usage eligibility

SYSTEM USAGE ELIGIBILITY

  • GOVERNMENT USER

    • FEDERAL, STATE, LOCAL INTERNATIONAL.

  • ENVIRONMENTAL MEASUREMENT DATA

  • DATA OF INTEREST TO GOVERNMENT ENTITIES

  • DATA SHARED WITH OTHER GOVERNMENT USERS.


Benefits

BENEFITS

  • Low-Cost

  • Low-Maintenance

  • Emergency Event-Driven Capability

  • Ideal for Remote Locations

  • Data Easily Shared Among Government Users


Drawbacks

DRAWBACKS

  • Finite Capacity (Approximately 133 Domestic Self-Timed Channels)

  • Scheduled Transmissions based on Channel/Time Availability

  • Interference Detection Difficult

  • Troubleshooting capabilities Minimal


Data dissemination methods

DATA DISSEMINATION METHODS

  • DCS AUTOMATED PROCESSING (DAPS)

    • Telnet or Dial-up Modem

  • DOMSAT (Commercial Communications Satellite)

  • DRGS (Direct Readout Ground System)

  • GTS (Global Telecommunications System) Network


Enhancements

ENHANCEMENTS

  • MORE EFFICIENT SYSTEM USE AGREEMENT

    • LESS PAPERWORK MEANS FASTER PROCESSING

    • “SUA” VERSUS “MOA” MAY MEAN LOWER USER APPROVAL LEVELS (I.E. FASTER PROCESSING)

    • BETTER TRACKING OF REQUESTS


Enhancements1

ENHANCEMENTS

  • MORE INFORMATION AVAILABLE ON WEB PAGES

    • APPLICATION FOR SYSTEM USE AGREEMENT

    • REPORTS

    • GENERAL AND TECHNICAL INFORMATION

    • TROUBLE REPORT AND ASSIGNMENT REQUEST TEMPLATES


Enhancements2

ENHANCEMENTS

  • High Data Rate Transmitters (300 or 1200 bps, compared to 100 bps)

  • GPS Clocks

    • Better Timing

    • Smaller Windows

    • Result: More Assignments


Hdr status

HDR STATUS

  • THREE MANUFACTURERS CERTIFIED TO SELL TRANSMITTERS

  • DEMODULATORS OPERATING SUCCESSFULLY

  • DEFICIT OF DEMODULATORS UNTIL FULL COMPLEMENT RECEIVED
