Date/Time Issued: November 14, 2018 1455 UTC

Product(s) or Data Impacted: Cancellation of EUMETSAT's Prime Satellite (0 degree) Meteosat-11 MSG HRIT Data from NOAA's U.S. DOMSAT Broadcast

Date/Time of Initial Impact: November 16, 2018

Date/Time of Expected End:Indefinitely

Details/Specifics of Change: In coordination with EUMETSAT, NOAA/NESDIS plans to terminate its U.S. DOMSAT direct broadcast of MSG 0 degree Prime satellite data (MSG-4; Meteosat-11) on November 16, 2018. This data service termination isdue in large part to obsolete equipment, limited distribution capacity and other factors such as the availability of robust data delivery systems.

In parallel with the U.S. DOMSAT service, NOAA/NESDIS has Meteosat-11 HRIT data available for its authorized users from its Product Distribution and Access (PDA) system (24x7 support) and from STAR FTP services (best effort support). In preparation for the cancellation of the U.S. DOMSAT MSG broadcast service, 24x7 operational users can request access to the MSG 0 degree Prime Meteosat-11 data from the NESDIS PDA or for non-operational users, from NESDIS STAR. Please contact "" for additional information to acquire Meteosat-11 data from either of these alternate NESDIS data distribution sources.
