1 INTERNATIONAL SATELLITE COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEM (ISCS) SUCESSOR TCP/IP SYSTEM Background - Status – Backup RA IV/WG-PIW-04/Doc. 5.2(1) ISCS Status (13.X.2004) Submitted by F. Branski, (USA)

2 The International Satellite Communications System (ISCS ) GENERAL DESCRIPTION & PURPOSE The ISCS is composed of two systems for data delivery via satellite communications. The first system is the World Area Forecast System (WAFS) in support of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) program for aviation data distribution. The WAFS broadcast makes globally available to aviation users the centrally produced aviation model forecast products of a World Area Forecast Center (WAFC) in global gridded binary form (WMO GRIB code), Alpha-numeric text, facsimile graphics ( T4-FAX format), and satellite imagery (GIF format) data types. T4 FAX will be replaced by binary graphics (BUFR) data format beginning in The second part of the ISCS is the Region IV Meteorological Telecommunications Network (RMTN) satellite system which replaced the two WMO Region IV GTS regional communication networks of the Antilles Meteorological (ANMET) and Central America Meteorological (CEMET). The RMTN supports WMO GRIB, alpha-numeric text, and T4-FAX data types. T4 FAX will be replaced by binary graphics (BUFR) data format beginning in 2004.

3 The International Satellite Communications System (ISCS)  The United States will continue to support ICAO/WMO requirements (as a servicing World Area Forecast Center (WAFC) and a Regional Telecommunication Hub (RTH) with the ISCS.  The global coverage will continue to span approximately from 105degrees east longitude to 65 degrees east longitude (covering the Pacific Ocean, Atlantic Ocean, North America, Central America, South America, and the Caribbean).  The remainder of the world coverage will continue to be supported by the WAFC located in the United Kingdom through their satellite broadcast system called SADIS (which primarily covers the European, Asian, and African continents as well as the Indian Ocean).

4 ISCS - STATUS Terrestrial 128 Kbps data links between NWSTG and ISCS Andover hub Nine (9) IP sockets replaced previous six (6) X.25 permanent virtual circuits (PVCs) Network supported both X.25 and IP protocols until approximately 30 November 2004 or until the IP system is considered fully operational Network interface equipment installed at all sites PD Receive network interface software distributed to all sites by MCI Six new 2-way sites in POR 25 receive only sites (WAFS) haven’t acquired a TCP/IP capable workstation Planned Backup of ISCS at NWS backup Telecommunication Gateway currently under development U.K. Met Office Backup of ISCS ISCS Backup of U.K. Met Office

5 ISCS IP Socket Assignments  The socket assignment at the NWSTG is assigned as below, and reordered in the Andover, MA routers for transmission to the AOR and POR.  Socket –1: AOR WAFS, WMO GRIB, Temp, Wind, & Humidity (Bulletins and charts)  Socket-2 AOR WAFS, Alphanumeric data messages  Socket 3 AOR WAFS, Graphical T4 coded data.  Socket 4: RMTN-IV Gridded Binary (GRIB) code data,  Socket 5: GTS Alphanumeric data (primarily synoptic and text),  Socket 6: RMTN-IV Graphical data (analysis and significant weather).  Socket 7: POR WAFS, WMO GRIB, Temp, Wind, & Humidity (Bulletins and charts)  Socket 8: POR WAFS, Alphanumeric data messages Socket 9: POR WAFS, Graphical T4 coded data.

7 ISCS Network Hub Configurations

8 ATLANTIC OCEAN REGION (AOR)  The AOR portion of the successor ISCS will be centered around the MCI shared Master Satellite Hub, in Andover, Maine.  The Master Satellite Hub will be linked via a 64 Kbps (128Kbps bursting) terrestrial (redundant) circuit to the National Weather Service Telecommunications Gateway (NWSTG) in Silver Spring, Maryland.  The NWSTG will continue to serve as the central point of data entry into the ISCS.  All ISCS data originating at the NWSTG will be transmitted, using TCP/IP network protocol, over to the MCI Andover facility for broadcast to all ISCS AOR sites.

9 ATLANTIC OCEAN REGION (AOR)  The AOR portion of the successor ISCS will be centered around the WorldCom shared Master Satellite Hub, in Andover, Maine.  The Master Satellite Hub will be linked via a 64 Kbps (128Kbps bursting) terrestrial (redundant) circuit to the National Weather Service Telecommunications Gateway (NWSTG) in Silver Spring, Maryland.  The NWSTG will continue to serve as the central point of data entry into the ISCS.  All ISCS data originating at the NWSTG will be transmitted, using TCP/IP network protocol, over to the WorldCom Andover facility for broadcast to all ISCS AOR sites.

10 PACIFIC OCEAN REGION (POR)  The POR portion of ISCS will be centered around the MCI shared Master Satellite Hub in Yacolt, Washington.  The Yacolt Master Satellite Hub will be linked via a 64 Kbps (128Kbps bursting) terrestrial (redundant) circuit to the MCI shared Master Satellite Hub in Andover, Maine.  All ISCS WAFS data originating at the NWSTG will transmitted, using TCP/IP network protocol, to the Yacolt facility (via the Andover facility) for broadcast to all POR sites.
