Software patch DO.06.03.00 has structural changes to products on the GOES Rebroadcast (GRB)

Software patch DO.06.03.00 has structural changes to EXIS, SEISS, and MAG products on the GOES Rebroadcast (GRB). The Work Requests and Algorithm Discrepancy Report numbers are listed below. This patch has been coordinated through the GRB User Group and with the Community Satellite Processing Package for Geostationary Data (CSPP) Geo program. The Product Definition Users Guide Volume 4 was updated and Version 1.2 reflects the changes made in the patch. Test files in NetCDF format are available through the GRB User Group Chairman by Email: james.mcnitt@noaa.gov

The CSPP Geo program is planning to release a patch for the CSPP Geo GRB software Wednesday, June 13, 2018. CSPP Geo users who process EXIS, SEISS and MAG products will have to synchronize applying the CSPP Geo software change with the OSPO's cutover to the DO.06.03.00 software, since the CSPP Geo change will not be backward compatible with the current EXIS, SEISS and MAG products. CSPP Geo users who do not process EXIS, SEISS and MAG products will not need to apply the CSPP Geo patch at all, as generation of products from other instruments will not be affected.

5141 459 EXIS EUVS X X qualityFlag Corrected typo (135.5nm corrected
to 133.5nm, 3 occurrances).
5141 459 EXIS EUVS X X euvsbQualityFlags Changed "euvsbQualityFlags"
DQF Flag Meanings:
- from invalid_due_to_EUVS-B
_L0_data_checksum_error_qf
, to degraded_due_to_EUVS-B_
L0_data_checksum_error_qf
5141 459 EXIS EUVS X X euvscQualityFlags Aligned with euvsaQualityFlags,
euvsbQualityFlags,

range_EUVS-C_pointing_qf
- degraded_due_to_calibrated_but_
exceeds _requirements_EUVS-C_
pointing_qf Changed "degraded _
due_to_EUVS
-C_L0 _data_checksum_error_qf
" to " invalid _due_to_EUVS-C_L0_
data_checksum_error_qf".

to match DO.06.03.00 product
software implmentation order.
4864 405 SEISS SGPS X X sgps_telemetry_time
