[McIDAS #MFU-475721]: GOES-R Data Access



Hi Fred,

re:
> As of last November, Unidata was close to providing GOES-16 ADDE support.

Actually, I our comments (which were included with your inquiry) have always
expressed our commitment to provide ADDE access to GOES-16 data.  They did
not include any comment on how soon we intended/hoped to make access
available.

re:
> What is the current status?

We are accessing the real-time GRB-delivered GOES-16 ABI imagery via ADDE
routinely in-house from the ingest system we installed at the NCAR Mesa
Lab.  In fact, when I was looking at loops of GOES-16 CONUS imagery when
your email was received.

re:
> Is the latest version of McIDAS needed to access and process GOES-16
> data?

The latest version of Unidata McIDAS-X/-XCD, v2017, has not yet been 
released.  This version is needed to serve the GOES-16 data correctly.
Previous versions of Unidata McIDAS-X/-XCD can be used to access
and process the ABI imagery that is served by v2017.

re:
> What is (or will be) the ADDE server name for the GOES-16 data?

If you are asking for the name of the machine/cluster that we will
be using to serve the data, we are not yet willing to provide that
information as it would encourage users to start hitting the machine
before it is ready for "prime time".

re:

ABI imagery from GOES-16 will be accessible well before the fall semester.
I am currently working on the ADDE servers for the ABI imagery that is being
distributed in the NOAAPort SBN.  As soon as I have the servers working
correctly, I will be releasing Unidata McIDAS-X/-XCD v2017.  As soon
as we have the data serving infrastructure in-place for the GRB-delivered
GOES-16 ABI imagery and products, we will be letting the community
know of the availability of real-time access to the GRB-delivered ABI
imagery and products.

Question:

- I thought that you had retired.  Are you still working for ERAU?

  Also, it is interesting to me that we have had no contact from
  ERAU about GOES-16 availability.

Cheers,

Tom
