1 GEO-NETCast Overview Linda V. Moodie GEO-NETCast Point of Contact GEO User Interface Committee Ottawa, Canada September 5-7, 2006

2 September 7, 2006GEO User Interface Committee, Ottawa, Canada 2 The Premise behind GEOSS

3 September 7, 2006GEO User Interface Committee, Ottawa, Canada 3 GEO-NETCast What is it? GEO-NETCast is a near real-time data dissemination system -- in support of the GEO societal benefit areas -- by which environmental in situ, airborne, and space-based observations, products, and services are transmitted to users through satellites. Why? To provide environmental data to users who would not otherwise have access to it. When? Target is to complete the global demonstration by the end of 2007

4 September 7, 2006GEO User Interface Committee, Ottawa, Canada 4 Overall Concept A global broadcast system for the delivery of data, products, and services contributed to GEOSS BData from in-situ and space-based observing systems in standard formats BSupporting all nine GEO societal benefit areas BBuilt on existing dissemination systems with data collection hubs around the globe Transmitted to affordable ground receiving stations through satellites BSituated to provide global coverage BUse of standard, multicast, dissemination protocols, such as Digital Video Broadcast (DVB), to encapsulate products of any format Dissemination is full and open, respecting existing data policies - Data is divided into channels that user can select based on need The cost of satellite communications for each sector of the globe would be funded by one or more partners in GEO-NETCast, and the day to day management of each sector would be under their responsibility

5 September 7, 2006GEO User Interface Committee, Ottawa, Canada 5 Major GEO-NETCast Participants GEOSS Data Providers Dissemination Service Managers Satellite Service Providers End Users From Nine GEO Societal Benefit Areas NOAA EUMETSAT Others Many telecomm vendors

6 September 7, 2006GEO User Interface Committee, Ottawa, Canada 6 Typical Receiver Station Configuration - Dedicated personal computer (~ $1000) Data analysis and processing should be done on separate computer(s) - Satellite antenna dish (1-3 m) (~ $ ) - DTH receiver card or box (~ $200)

7 September 7, 2006GEO User Interface Committee, Ottawa, Canada 7 Interface to GEO GEO, in December 2005, adopted the concept in principle of a GEO- NETCast, as presented by NOAA and EUMETSAT GEO-NETCast identified as key GEO Work Plan task for 2006 GEO Architecture and Data Committee has oversight –Must coordinate also with Capacity Building and User Interface Committees GEO-NETCast Implementation Group (US/NOAA, EUMETSAT, WMO) leads and manages the initiative –Could include involvement of other infrastructure providers when identified

8 September 7, 2006GEO User Interface Committee, Ottawa, Canada 8 GEO-NETCast Implementation Group NOAA –Richard Fulton EUMETSAT –Michael Williams WMO –Donald Hinsman Other infrastructure contributors from around the world Co-leads Linda Moodie (NOAA) : GEO-NETCast Point of Contact for GEO

9 September 7, 2006GEO User Interface Committee, Ottawa, Canada 9 GEO Members and Organizations Indicating Interest in GEO-NETCast Argentina Australia Brazil China European Commission Finland Germany Greece Japan Korea New Zealand Russia South Africa United Kingdom United States (co-lead) African Association of Remote Sensing of the Environment (AARSE) Committee on Earth Observation Satellites (CEOS) European Space Agency (ESA) EUMETNET EUMETSAT (co-lead) Federation of Digital Broadband Seismographic Networks (FDSN) International Institute of Space Law (IISL) Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) World Meteorological Organization (WMO) (co-lead)

10 September 7, 2006GEO User Interface Committee, Ottawa, Canada 10 Work for 2006 NOAA, EUMETSAT and WMO to refine initial technical details relating to late spring demo of GEO-NETCast (as built upon EUMETCast), including the identification and provision by NOAA of data sets to be added to EUMETCast data. The first version of a demo product list is now available. Refine concept, including an assessment of current data transfer and dissemination systems, a discussion of options, and a recommended way forward, building on identified user requirements. Identify other GEO-NETCast providers to develop a global dissemination capability and all associated technical tasks. Work with the GEO User Interface and Capacity Building Committees and others to identify additional data, products, services, and reception requirements to address the needs of all nine societal benefit areas under GEO. Develop full master schedule through GEO-III timeframe. Report status and proposed way forward to GEOs Architecture and Data Committee, Executive Committee, and Plenary.

13 September 7, 2006GEO User Interface Committee, Ottawa, Canada 13 Current GEO-NETCast Data Flow to Seattle Usingen, Germany Uplink Hotbird-6 Satellite Paris, France Turnaround NSS-806 Satellite Virginia, USA Turnaround AMC-3 Satellite Seattle, USA NOAA + EUMETSAT Demo Products KuKu FTP CKuKu

14 September 7, 2006GEO User Interface Committee, Ottawa, Canada 14 Participants Meeting: July 19, 2006 Objectives with Outcomes Objective: Ensure that there is a consensus understanding of the initiative; Outcome: –Scope of GEO-NETCast in context of GEOSS architecture –Phased development, progressing to operational –Global coverage –Serving all nine societal benefit areas –Involvement of developing countries Objective: Identify those partners that might be able to provide other components, both infrastructure and data or products, contributing to a global dissemination capability; Outcome: -Prospective global coverage by late 2007: -EUMETSAT currently covering Europe, Africa, much of Americas -US/NOAA intending to provide coverage of the Americas and much of Pacific -China offering to provide coverage of East Asia, Australia, and western Pacific -Expanding data and products to serve all nine SBAs will require additional resources, both in-kind and actual (e.g., for additional bandwidth)
