Interfaces Air Force Weather Agency (AFWA) NOAA Satellite and Information Service (NESDIS) Fleet Numerical Meteorology and Oceanography Center (FNMOC) Naval Oceanographic Office (NAVO) NPOESS Preparatory Project (NPP) Science Data Segment (SDS) Comprehensive Large Array-data Stewardship System (CLASS) NASA’s Science Data Segment will independently assess the quality of the science and environmental data records from the NPP mission for their ability to support climate research. All data products will be provided to NOAA’s Comprehensive Large-Array data Stewardship System (CLASS) for distribution to the broader scientific user community. The plan for the follow on mission is to add two more Centrals: FNMOC and NAVO. NPP will provide data for processing at each of the two centrals: AFWA and NESDIS. Each Central will then disseminate the data to their user communities. The data products generated on IDPS are delivered to the Centrals, CLASS and SDS based on their data subscriptions.
IDPS Functional Overview Infrastructure Data Delivery Ingest Data Management Processing Data Quality Monitor The Infrastructure subsystem manages IDPS by initiating tasks, monitoring processes, monitoring product generation, and maintaining log files of Status, Error, and Informational messages. It also provides common utilities, tools and a scheduler. It interfaces with NPOESS Enterprise Management (EM) as well as providing the main GUI for IDP Operator management, control and status. The Ingest subsystem is the primary input path for data into IDPS. Stored Mission Data and Mission Support Data are ingested and used to create Raw Data Records (RDRs). The Interface Data Processing Segment (IDPS) consists of the data processing elements (DPEs) located at each of the four Centrals to generate and deliver NPOESS and NPP products and associated metadata to the Centrals for additional application specific processing and dissemination. Each IDPS consists of six subsystems: Infrastructure, Ingest, Processing, Data Management, Data Delivery and Data Quality Monitoring. The Data Delivery Subsystem is the primary mechanism for data delivery. Users have the capability to submit data requests via a GUI or use of an API. HDF5 formatting, packaging and aggregation of NPOESS Data products is performed. The Processing (PRO) subsystem performs the data processing for product generation. PRO takes RDRs, ancillary (ANC) and auxiliary (AUX) data as inputs to generate Sensor Data Records (SDRs), Temperature Data Records (TDRs), geolocation information, Intermediate Products (IPs), and Environmental Data Records (EDRs). PRO assesses the data quality of the SDR, TDR, and EDRs and sends real-time quality notifications to the Data Quality Monitoring (DQM) subsystem to alert the operators of possible quality degradation. The Data Management Subsystem manages the data within IDPS. Its primary function is sharing data between processes and the other subsystems. It provides on-line repository of data, inventory and metadata. DQM performs quality monitoring of the data products. It allows automated and ad-hoc processing in support of data quality notifications from the PRO subsystem. It also provides the interface and tools for the data quality engineers to analyze the data and generate reports. This subsystem is implemented only at the NESDIS.
