1 The National Polar-Orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite System (NPOESS) and NPOESS Preparatory Project (NPP) Access to Data: A Partnership International Polar Orbiter Processing Package (IPOPP) John Overton NPOESS Integrated Program Office

2 Evolution of Polar Direct Broadcast SSM/I, SSMIS, SSM/T, SSM/T-2 IMAPP, NASA DAAC, SeaDASSeaDAS, NISGS, IPOPP, NPOESS FTS

3 International Polar Orbiter Processing Package The International Polar Orbiter Processing Package (IPOPP) is a software package that will be critical to the Direct Broadcast (DB) user community throughout it’s transition from EOS to NPOESS processvisualizeevaluate IPOPP is the primary processing package that will enable the DB community to process, visualize, and evaluate NPP Sensor and Environmental Data Records - which is a necessity for the DB community during the transition from the Earth Observing System Era to the NPOESS Era. NOTE: Terra (and perhaps Aqua) are subject to being decommissioned once NPP has completed CAL/VAL. Terra mission life was extended when NPP launch schedule moved to April 08.

4 Why is IPOPP Needed? The DB Community has high expectations for mission continuity from EOS to NPOESS –A transition from IMAPP to IPOPP provides DB community with user friendly processing packages for regional optimized applications Enables global feedback loop for NPP CAL/VAL campaigns –Enable DB users to contribute their regional validated processing approaches/products to assist and improve global CAL/VAL efforts Initiates role of research to operations provider for the IPO Direct Readout Mission –To facilitate the adoption/adaptation of DB regional optimized research/unique processing approaches to enhance NPOESS DB software functionality and capability

5 The Partnership NASA Direct Readout Lab – NPP In-situ Ground Station –Director: Patrick Coronado –System Engineer: Kelvin Brentzel University of Wisconsin, Space Science Engineering Center, Cooperative Institute of Meteorological Satellite Studies – IMAPP –Principal Investigator: Allen Huang –Principal Investigator: Liam Gumley NPOESS Integrated Program Office – Direct Readout Mission –Manager: John Overton –System Engineer: Joe Zajic –Meteorologist: Bill Munley

6 IPOPP Building on the foundation of IMAPP and NISGS IMAPP provided DB Community access to EOS data through an open source multi-platform processing environment with validated algorithms NISGS will provide evolved technology applications for NPOESS instruments on NPP starting at the signal processing element (RT- STPS), all sensor Level 1A/B (SDRs) products, and Level 2 (EDR) processing for Active Fires and Vegetation Index IPOPP will extend NISGS using development principles and goals of IMAPP to provide DB Community access to NPOESS sensor data on NPP through an open source multi-platform processing environment with validated algorithms NPOESS: Level 1A = RDR, Level 1B = SDR, Level 2 = EDR
