NOAA Office of Satellite and Product Operations

At 17:11:00 UTC on November 02, 2023, the OSPO/ESPC operations for all the three legacy NOAA satellites, NOAA-15, NOAA-18 and NOAA-19, were transitioned into the POES Extended Life Ground Systems. The downlink satellite data acquisitions and the relevant deliveries are now operated by PARSONS Company. OSPO/ESPC continues to produce and distribute L1b data at NSOF.
In the POES Extended Life Era:

  • All the NOAA GACs will be only from Parsons, and are displayed in blue. The GAC files will end with SV.
  • Parsons's NOAA HRPT orbits will also end with SV, and are displayed in blue.
  • OSPO/ESPC continues to support Direct Readout services for HRPT data in the POES-EL era. The HRPTs coming from the direct readout sites currently include FI and MO.
  • Note: In case of MetOp orbits, the highlighted blue orbits indicate "Unscheduled Orbit".

POES Level 1B data files contain data quality flags to support users' data applications. The web page summarizes the data quality status based on the Polar Pre-product Processing (PPP) reports. [ Return to Main PPP Page ]

Notes:
a) A red background number indicates that the overall percentage is below 90%, a pre-set threshold.
b) A blue background indicates no observation scan found.
