Topic:  Partial MIRS outage


Date/Time Issued:  June 24th, 2021 1947Z

Product(s) or Data Impacted:  MIRS products from all satellites except S-NPP and NOAA-20. Other products which use MIRS outputs: ETRAP, Arctic Composites, polar satellite composites.


Date/Time of Initial Impact:  June 24th, 2021 1530Z


Date/Time of Expected End:  TBD


Length of Event:  TBD


Details/Specifics of Change:  A hardware failure has caused MIRS processing for satellites other than N-20 and S-NPP to stop. This includes products from NOAA-19, Metop, DMSP, GCOM, and GPM satellites.

This will cause degradation in other products which use MIRS outputs, notably E-TRAP and Arctic Composite.

Technical teams are evaluating the source of the problem and evaluating options for return to service.
