SIT-29 Meeting CNES, Toulouse, France 9 th -10 th April Organisational VC Terms of References are in draft: Alignment with other VC Terms of References. ToR’s need another loop for review among all the OST-VC participating agencies and organizations. VC co-chairs update : Juliette Lambin (CNES) replacing Eric Lindstrom (NASA) Hans Bonekamp (EUMETSAT) replacing Francois Parisot (EUMETSAT)
SIT-29 Meeting CNES, Toulouse, France 9 th -10 th April 2014 “Bad Cop” vs OST-VC Advancement of the CEOS Virtual Constellations: Objective/DeliverableProjected Completi on Date Background InformationResponsible CEOS Entity VC-1: List of Relevant Datasets from VCs Results of study will be fed into WGISS IDN to ensure coverage of all VC data. VCs with support from WGISS VC-7: Catalogue of Cal/Val infrastructure and activities This will help in identifying risks, the needs for advancement and to promote agency calibration. OCR-VC VC-8: Action Plan for GEO Blue Planet Components Q1 2015Components as identified in the revised Blue Planet Task White Paper (November 2013). OCR-VC VC-9: Updated OST CEOS Constellation URD Update will encompass SAR Mode Altimetry. OST-VC VC-10: Catalog of Cal/Val infrastructure This catalog will help with Cal/Val planning and promote agency coordination. A major interest of the OST- VC is the sustainability of critical Cal/Val elements. OST-VC VC-11: Reprocessing strategy for TOPEX/Jason-1 (ENVISAT?) missions OST-VC Bad Cop
SIT-29 Meeting CNES, Toulouse, France 9 th -10 th April 2014 Ocean Surface Topography is a key parameter in the Blue Planet, already widely available: de-facto high interest from OST-VC Integration with other parameter: very active works at research and operational level. Not specific requirements yet coming from OST user community: will certainly change in the near future => OST-VC will take those into account
SIT-29 Meeting CNES, Toulouse, France 9 th -10 th April OST-VC implementation an coordination issues: Finalize ToR Find some formal meeting occasions: next OST-ST Meeting in Konstanz, Oct 2014 Engage more actively agencies from India, China (CNSA, NSOAS), Japan in the OST-VC activities cannot be reduced to OSTST meetings OST-VC implementation and coordination issues
