Systems and Services for Real-Time Web Access to NPP Data

Completed Technology Project

Project Description

Systems and Services for Real-Time Web Access to NPP Data
Global Science & Technology, Inc. (GST) proposes to investigate information processing and delivery technologies to provide near-real-time Web-based access to satellite data from the National Polar-Orbiting Environmental Satellite System (NPOESS) Preparatory Project (NPP). We will investigate computing hardware and software requirements for serving data products acquired through NPP Direct Broadcast to modelers, forecasters, and decision-makers, via industry-standard Web services, within minutes of sensor acquisition. This effort will fill in a notable gap in the transition between current observational systems and the future NPOESS (National Polar-Orbiting Environmental Satellite System. More »
