Details/Specifics of Change: In coordination with EUMETSAT, NOAA/NESDIS plans to terminate its U.S. DOMSAT direct broadcast of MSG 0 degree Prime satellite data (currently Meteosat-11) on November 16, 2018. This service termination isdue in large part to obsolete equipment, limited distribution capacity and other factors such as the availability of robust data delivery systems.

In parallel with the U.S. DOMSAT service, NOAA/NESDIS has Meteosat-11 HRIT data available for its authorized users from its Product Distribution and Access (PDA) system (24x7 support) and from STAR FTP services (best effort support). In preparation for the loss of the U.S. DOMSAT MSG broadcast service, 24x7 operational users can access the MSG data from the NESDIS PDA or for non-operational users, from NESDIS STAR. Please contact "" for additional information to acquire MSG 0 degree Prime satellite data (currently Meteosat-11) from the NESDIS PDA or from the NESDIS STAR server.
