1 GEO User Interface Committee Meeting, Ottawa, 5 – 7 September 2006 Page 1 GEONETCast The EUMETCast Contribution Delivering Operational Services to Users

2 GEO User Interface Committee Meeting, Ottawa, 5 – 7 September 2006 Page 2 Established in the GEO context to provide a dissemination component of the GEOSS Utilises existing data dissemination infrastructure provided by environmental satellite operators Provides environmental satellite and in-situ data and products to users on a global, operational basis Lead organisations –EUMETSAT –NOAA –WMO GEONETCast Concept

3 GEO User Interface Committee Meeting, Ottawa, 5 – 7 September 2006 Page 3 GEONETCast Concept An operational GEONETCast Implementation Group has been established Composed of the lead organisations with potential involvement of other contributors; Reports to the GEO Architecture and Data Committee; Points of Contact are: –GEO POC: –EUMETSAT POC: –NOAA POC: –WMO POC:

4 GEO User Interface Committee Meeting, Ottawa, 5 – 7 September 2006 Page 4 Based on existing dissemination infrastructure: –EUMETCast Data Providers/Sources: –EUMETSAT and its Satellite Application Facilities (SAFs) –NOAA –National Meteorological Services (NMSs), ESA, NASA, EC/VITO ….. –Other data providers Users: –Global User Community GEONETCast Components

5 GEO User Interface Committee Meeting, Ottawa, 5 – 7 September 2006 Page 5 EUMETCast Overview EUMETSATs Broadcast System for Environmental Data A multi-service dissemination system based on standard Digital Video Broadcast (DVB) technology Using commercial telecommunication geostationary satellites to multicast files (data and products) to a wide user community EUMETCast is now available for use by Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS), the European Global Monitoring for Environmental and Security (GMES) initiatives and other environmental data providers EUMETCast is also a EUMETSAT contribution to the Integrated Global Data Dissemination Service (IGDDS), a component of the World Meteorological Organization Information System (WIS)

6 GEO User Interface Committee Meeting, Ottawa, 5 – 7 September 2006 Page 6 Generic, multi-mission dissemination systems based on standard DVB multicast technology Uses commercial broadcast channels on TV, DTH telecommunication satellites Off-the shelf, commercially available reception equipment IP over DVB standard coding Transparent transfer of files, i.e. files received exactly as sent Use of standard formats/encoding - XRIT, BUFR, GRIB, HDF … Secure access control at individual file and group of Users level Open, flexible, scalable architecture EUMETCast Technical Approach & Standards

7 GEO User Interface Committee Meeting, Ottawa, 5 – 7 September 2006 Page 7 EUMETCast Overview

8 GEO User Interface Committee Meeting, Ottawa, 5 – 7 September 2006 Page 8 EUMETCast Coverage

9 GEO User Interface Committee Meeting, Ottawa, 5 – 7 September 2006 Page 9 EUMETCast User Reception Terminal Antenna/feed/LNB Antenna size depending on Ku/C-Band and signal strength (Ku-Band typically 0.8 to 1.2 m, C-Band 2.4 m) Standard digital TV LNB DVB Receiver Cards used/recommended Technisat SkyStar2 BroadLogic 2030 Pentamedia Workstation Standard / state-of-the-art PC (with USB port) Software Operating Systems: Windows and Linux supporting EUMETCast Client S/W TelliCast (supporting processing, monitoring and logging of received data) Additional Support S/W (decompression, file transfer agents, …)

10 GEO User Interface Committee Meeting, Ottawa, 5 – 7 September 2006 Page 10 EUMETCast User Reception Terminal Cost DVB Standard Hardware LNB Ku-/C-band & Satellite Dish200/1500 EUR DVB PCI Card100 EUR DVB Multicast Client Software 60 EUR PC, Hard Disk, Ethernet1000 EUR 1.400/2700 EUR EUMETCast Key Unit (EKU) 40 EUR

11 GEO User Interface Committee Meeting, Ottawa, 5 – 7 September 2006 Page 11 Further Information on Terminal Manufacturers guide Real-time status indicator Admin/info messages Technical Description TD15 –What a User Terminal consists of –How to set it up –What services are available Data Providers Guide –How to access EUMETCast –How the EUMETCast datastreams are structured –What the policy is for the use of EUMETCast EUMETCast in a Nutshell –How the datastreams are formatted –How the coding works

12 GEO User Interface Committee Meeting, Ottawa, 5 – 7 September 2006 Page 12 EUMETCast User Community Over 1700 EUMETCast User stations deployed Approximately 50 new User stations are added per month 320 institutional Users in Europe (NMSs, Institutes, Research, Commercial) 850 private/individual Users in Europe 110 Users outside Europe, nearly all institutional: –80 in Africa –16 in the Middle East –5 in the US –2 in South America –3 in Russia –2 in Asia – China and Uzbekistan Users like the one-stop-shop approach All the currently deployed stations are ready to acquire GEONETCast datastreams/products.

13 GEO User Interface Committee Meeting, Ottawa, 5 – 7 September 2006 Page 13 GEONETCast Demonstration Is already running delivering Met-8, GOES and EUM & NOAA-sourced products to South America Datastreams will be added addressing other applications/User communities Consists of a merged stream of NOAA/US and EUMETSAT/Europe sourced data and products Scope of the demo includes the definition of the User Terminal required for data acquisition and basic data processing Suitable processing s/w packages include: –2Met! - GeoSatSignal- MSG Data Manager –Cinesat- GRIB Viewer- HRPT Manager –Messir - HDF Viewer- ATOVS Reader –MEOS- Timestep- XRIT2PIC Demo does not currently cover provision of User Terminals, or upgrades to existing User Terminals Datastream/product list has been compiled by NOAA and EUMETSAT

14 GEO User Interface Committee Meeting, Ottawa, 5 – 7 September 2006 Page 14 Recently (July 2006) a Demo was given at Seattle
