converted to McIDAS format and placed on a server. In addition, some foreign geostationary data, polar data, model data and derived products are converted into McIDAS. This data is served via McIDAS ADDE software: Data NSOF Server ADDE Name Derived Products SATEPSDIST1e DPD GOES-E SATEPSDIST2e GER GOES-W SATEPSDIST3e GWR Polar SATEPSDIST4e PLR Model data SATEPSDIST5 MOD Global Mosaic 5 Sat.

Data Access & Distribution Policy Contact: [email protected] Full policy and forms at Security requirement to know and document all users accessing operational data servers and what products they are receiving Users request data using a Data Access Request (DAR) form. Ever increasing data volumes require prioritization of users to effectively manage data distribution resources to ensure effective system performance Higher priority access will be given to organizations with: Mission and statutory authority that supports the requirement for data access Signed NESDIS cooperative agreements or other legislative authorities A demonstrated timeliness requirement for near-real time satellite data and products to support operational user applications. If available, users will be directed to sources of data that are external to

NESDIS but still fulfill data requirement. We will make best efforts to recommend alternative distribution sources for users that are denied access to operational servers. OFFICE OF SATELLITE AND PRODUCT OPERATIONS 11 Data Access & Distribution DDS Re-Validation was accomplished in 2012 Migration to new DDS was completed There was a 17% reduction in the number of approved accounts SATEPSDIST Re-Validation starting around May 1 Part of migration to new GEODIST servers

GEODIST will likely host ONLY McIDAS ADDE access McIDAS GROUP/DESCRIPTOR access restrictions will be enacted for external users It very important users identify all datasets they need All non-McIDAS files will be served via DDS Contact information for SATEPSDIST users were not well maintained, so if you are a current user who has not been contacted, let us know ASAP to get a DAR form. GEODIST scheduled to be operational in Aug (may be delayed) -- Planning for 30 days parallel test period prior to becoming operational -- Planning to have SATEPSDIST run with 8x5 support for 2 weeks after cut-over date. OFFICE OF SATELLITE AND PRODUCT OPERATIONS 12 Future Data Access & Distribution New enterprise system Product Distribution and Access (PDA) is coming Will be used for legacy GOES/POES, NPP, IJPS and GOES-R data access Operational for legacy and NPP planned for Oct 2014 talk to follow McIDAS ADDE access will remain on GEODIST OFFICE OF SATELLITE AND PRODUCT OPERATIONS 13
