Topic: ESPDS PDA scheduled COOP activity will affect NOAA-20/S-NPP/GCOM-W1 product distribution.

Date/Time Issued: May 8, 2019 1510Z

Product(s) or Data Impacted: NOAA-20/S-NPP/GCOM-W1 products

Date/Time of the Initial Impact: May 7, 2018 1410Z

Date/Time of Expected End: May 8, 2018 1510Z

Length of the Outage: See details below.

Details/Specifics of Change:

All NOAA-20/S-NPP/GCOM-W1 data processing and flight/satellite operations will be failed over to the Consolidated Backup (CBU) site at Fairmont, WV on May 7, 2019 in support of a test of our backup capability. The purpose of the exercise is to ensure the ability to failover NOAA-20/S-NPP/GCOM-W1 for both flight and data operations to the CBU.

The NDE (product generation) and PDA (data distribution) portion of the CBU exercise will begin at approximately 1010 EDT / 1410 UTC on May 7, 2019. During that planned time:

M-7 NOAA-20/S-NPP/GCOM-W1 data ingest will begin to flow to our product generation and distribution systems at CBU. Ingest will run for approximately 24 hours at CBU.

M-7 The last NOAA-20/S-NPP/GCOM-W1 received at NSOF before the CBU activation will process and be available within 1-2 hours at NSOF after the activation. Similarly, after ingest stops at CBU, products will continue to process and be distributed at PDA for 1-2 hours at CBU after failback to NSOF.

M-7 This is a PARTIAL COOP scenario, meaning that all other data (legacy data) will continue to be available via PDA NSOF.

M-7 PDA staff will have a call in number to help troubleshoot usersM-bM-^@M-^Y issues from 0930 EDT / 1330 UTC until 1300 EDT / 1700 UTC on Tue May 7 and from 0930 EDT / 1330 UTC until 1300 EDT / 1700 UTC, or until all processing at CBU is complete on Tue May 8. That number is 877-951-0690, pin 4961539#.
