Primary source of data for short term forecasting, especially of severe weather such as tropical storms

Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellites (POES)

Provides world-wide coverage every 12 hours

Directly broadcasts data to users worldwide

Primary source of data for longer term weather prediction, global environmental monitoring, and long-term predictions

Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP)

Department of Defense satellite operated by NOAA

Provides world-wide coverage every 12 hours

Directly broadcasts data to Department of Defense users

Ocean Surface Topography Mission (OTSM) Jason-2

User Services

  • The Satellite Services Division serves as the primary interface with the user community of environmental satellite data and products:
  • Provides realtime notifications to users and stakeholders of any type of activity affecting product ingest, processing or distribution
  • Maintains “One Stop Shop” Help Desk responsible for the monitoring of many operational OSDPD products and services, and serves as the “first line” information portal for users with problems or questions about products.
  • Serves as the conduit of information between users and the Product Area Leads (PALs), concerning inquiries about product or dissemination specifics.
  • Enhances the knowledge transfer between OSDPD and stakeholders, concerning new or enhanced products or services, changes to operational or experimental satellite systems, and facilitates the transition of products from research to operations (R2O)
slide10

User Services

  • Maintaining information portals to enhance the flow of information between OSDPD/SSD and users:
    • Updated web page with FAQ, contacts, and archive of all notifications
    • E-mail lists, GTS bulletins, Twitter, RSS feeds
    • Acquiring Help Desk/CRM Tools with user “portals” for instant access to information
    • Integrating web based information delivery pages with existing SOCC status charts

User Services

Help Desk Process Improvements

  • A Concept of Operations (ConOps) was developed for OSDPD User Services to assist with the development, integration, and enhancement of all user services:
  • Customer Relationship Management
  • User Inquiries
  • Problem Reporting
  • Data ingest, processing, and distribution status charts
  • Satellite and instrument status
  • Facility/IT status
  • Routine and scheduled satellite events
  • Meetings were held with stakeholders (NESDIS and NWS) to solicitfeedback and suggestions on User Notifications.
  • Help Desk procedures were modified to allow operators to generate notifications and management calls with greater ease and efficiency.
  • All operational products and applications are currently being vetted to determine notification requirements, management escalation, and user impacts.

What does the future hold?

  • GOES-R and NPOESS each bring a set of unique challenges and opportunities to User Services:
  • Increase of raw data and products
  • User Education and Training
  • Proving Grounds
  • Working with NDE and GOES-R to develop and vet user requirements
  • Ensure users are “ready” for the next generation

Current methodology for requesting GOES I-P Rapid Scan

AWIPS does not handle Super Rapid Scan (for research and special events only)

SDM relays request to SAB. SAB checks schedule (maneuvers, eclipse, etc)

SAB relays request to ESPC Operations. ESPC generates user notice

NWS Request for RSO through SDM

ESPC relays request to SOCC. SOCC generates schedule and confirms

GOES-East Routine Scan

GOES-East Rapid Scan

Up to 40% of schedule during Spring/Summer “Convective” season is comprised of Rapid Scanning.

Results in significant loss of satellite coverage for South America
