Update #5: Please note that J01 is referenced to NOAA-20.  NOAA-20 instrument activation activities are on-going. ATMS was placed in operational mode at 03:52:43 UTC. CERES was placed in operational mode at 04:55:12 UTC. OMPS was placed in operational mode at 04:55:51 UTC. VIIRS was placed in operational mode at 17:26:48 UTC. CrIS is expected to be fully activated over the next several upcoming contacts. While the NOAA-20 High Rate Data (HRD) is enabled, Direct Broadcast (DB) users are advised that all NOAA-20 data is still undergoing evaluation by Cal/Val science teams and have not been cleared for operations.

NOAA-20 science data is now available through GRAVITE, CLASS and NDE I&T through which the Cal/Val teams are performing their full analysis. NOAA-20 PDA OPS science product subscriptions will be activated after each product is cleared for operations.

Update #4: NOAA-20 transitioned to Mission Point mode at 0321Z on September 30, 2023.  The NOAA-20 spacecraft remains power positive and all communications elements are functional. Instrument activation is expected to occur over the next several contacts. Users are advised NOAA-20 data is undergoing further evaluation by Cal/Val science teams. Instrument activation times will be included on the next update to this notice. PDA OPS subscriptions for all NOAA-20 science products have been disabled as of 2310Z on September 29, 2023. NOAA-20 science product subscriptions will be activated after each product is cleared for operations.

Update #3:  After further investigation, NOAA-20 entered a non-nominal state at 1902Z on September 29, 2023. Telemetry from subsequent contacts indicate a possible Spacecraft Command Processor reset and all instruments are confirmed to be in a safe state. Engineering will continue to restore all instruments and science data to an operational state once a plan forward has been determined. All missed data will not be recoverable (after the 1836Z Sept 29, 2023 observation time). The S-NPP and NOAA-21 satellites will continue to provide JPSS science data as the secondary and tertiary satellites, respectively.

Update #2: IDPS is not receiving any SMD data until further notice. Engineering is investigating.

Update #1: IDPS did not receive SMD data for the J01 McMurdo contact 30382. The cause for the J01 data outage is being investigated.
