7. RETRANSMITTED (GVAR) DATA

Raw imager and sounder data are transmitted to the Command and Data Acquisition Station (CDA) at Wallops, VA, continuously in real time. Raw imager data are in 10-bit words, raw sounder data in 13-bit words. This section describes the subsequent data flow at the CDA culminating in the retransmission of processed data to users in the GVAR data stream.
