Update #5: Engineering continued instrument science data activation activities for S-NPP. As of Friday, July 28, 2023, VIIRS SDR products are approved for operational use. Direct Broadcast (DB) users can use the equivalent Community Satellite Processing Package (CSPP) LEO products for operations. However, Cal/Val teams and PALs are continuing their analysis on VIIRS EDR products. NDE/PDA subscriptions for all VIIRS science products are expected to be enabled early next week.
The OMPS SDR and EDR teams will evaluate OMPS Limb Profile (LP), Nadir Profile (NP), and Nadir Mapper (NM) product quality after the OMPS SDR Look Up Tables (LUTs) are ingested into operations mid next week.
The CrIS instrument is showing nominal recovery, but Cal/Val teams will still need to conduct more analysis before all CrIS science products can be approved for operational use.
Update #4: Engineering continued instrument science data activation activities for S-NPP.
As of Thursday, July 27, 2023, VIIRS was placed in full operational mode at ~16:50 UTC. CrIS was placed in full operational mode at ~19:36 UTC. Cal/Val teams are focusing their analysis on observed data following this timeline. This science data will be available through GRAVITE, NCCF, CLASS and NDE I&T through which the Cal/Val teams and PALs can perform their full analysis.
S-NPP Tropical Cyclone Products (NTCP) and Blended hydro have been approved for operational use and NDE/PDA subscriptions for those products were enabled at 15:30 UTC.
Full product recovery is expected to require approximately 1 week. S-NPP VIIRS, CrIS, OMPS product subscriptions on PDA OPS will be enabled as each product is cleared for operations by the Cal/Val teams and Product Area Leads (PAL) and approved by OSPO’s Satellite Products and Services Division (SPSD). OSPO will issue an ESPC Notification prior to distributing the product on PDA OPS. At that point CSPP LEO users can use the equivalent CSPP product for operations.
