2 Outline Status of Result Area #1 Introduction Receiving Stations Perspective, Status, Challenges Delivery of 1TB Disks Perspective, Status, Challenges Dissemination of products via EUMETCAST Perspective, Status, Challenges Dissemination of products via Website/FTP Perspective, Status, Challenges 2

3 Introduction 3 Result Area #1: Improved Data Access Objective: Ensure that users hav e access to near real-time and historical earth observation data Near real time data accessHistorical data access Website1 TB Hard DriveReceiving Stations

4 SADC- IND2: 34 Receiving Stations are installed / upgraded and operational within the first year (= before May 2011) 10 PUMA for National Met Services 10 PUMA for National Met Services (under SC = Supply Contract) 10 AMESD e-station 10 AMESD e-station for Ministries of Agriculture (under SC) 14 AMESD-Fire station 14 AMESD-Fire station for Ministries of Environment Perspective: National Focal points have access to Near Real Time Earth Observation data for their operational needs. 4 Receiving Stations

8 Challenges: Receiving stations initially installed on private networks hence not accessible to users on their local area network Insufficient competent IT personnel to manage the stations Insufficient use of some receiving stations mostly due to limited knowledge on how to operate the system Power interruptions (blackouts) Data access by regional institutes e.g. Universities not yet adequate Recommendation: Facilitate additional station installation in MESA Further training IT personnel and users in institutes on how to manage the systems and make use of the data Backup power for receiving stations? (solar panels etc) 8 Receiving Stations

9 Perspective: National Focal Points have access to historical data for research and development. SADC- IND#3a: By October 2011, 11 Institutes (Ministry of Environment) received the 1 TB disc SADC- IND#3b: By October 2011, 11 Institutes (Ministry of Agriculture) received the 1 TB disc SADC- IND#3c: By October 2011, 11 Institutes (Universities) received the 1 TB disc 9 1TB Disks

10 Challenges: Fewer universities received disks, this is due to the limited number of participating universities Target: 33 Disks Current Status: 34 Disks delivered 10 1TB Disks

11 Dissemination via EumetCast All products that are currently being produced are being automatically disseminated to EUMETCast Most decadal products disseminated on evening of the third day following end of decade Perspective: Users with receiving stations can have access to products in near–real time 11 Dissemination via EUMETCast

12 Dissemination via EumetCast Challenges: Limited number of users have receiving stations Recommendation: Facilitate additional station installation in MESA 12 Dissemination via EUMETCast

13 Website/FTP The most recent data for all products that are currently being produced is available on website Website is mostly used as a resource for recovering products which could not be received on the receiving station Perspective: Alternative method of data acquisition 13 Dissemination via Website

14 Website/FTP Challenges: -Limited bandwidth (concurrent downloads) Recommendation: -Upgrading of web-hosting facilities 14 Dissemination via Website Website usage: May 2013

15 Maintenance of Receiving Stations Station Maintenance of Fire Receiving Station at Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism, Tanzania on 3 rd December Recent Activities Maintenance of AMESD Receiving Station at Ministry of Agriculture, Tanzania on 5th December 2012

16 Maintenance of Receiving Stations Station Maintenance of AMESD Receiving Station at Ministry of Agriculture, Mozambique on 1 st April Recent Activities Maintenance of AMESD Receiving Station at University of Swaziland on 5 th April 2013

17 System Administration Training AMESD System Administration Training, Gaborone, Botswana, 14 – 16 January Recent Activities AMESD Fire Station Administration Training, University of Botswana, 18 February 2013
