Topic: NDE System Upgrade

Date/Time Issued: May 18, 2020 1530 UTC

Product(s) or Data Impacted:  All NDE VIIRS clouds and downstream products, GOES 16 ASOS products

Satellite(s) Involved:  S-NPP and NOAA-20, GOES 16

Date/Time of Initial Impact:  May 18, 2020 1700 UTC

Date/Time of Expected End: May 18, 2020 1730 UTC

Length of Outage: 30 minutes

Details/Specifics of Change: 

This upgrade is planned to occur during back orbits. NDE will not be ingesting, processing or distributing data during installation. No data loss expected, but there will be a possible backlog of processing when installation is complete.

Starting on April 27, 2020, NCEI stopped producing Reynolds SST V2.0, which is used by VIIRS clouds and downstream products, and GOES 16 ASOS products as an ancillary input. NDE testing of the new Reynolds SST V2.1 is complete.  On May 18, 2020 at 1700 UTC, NDE will upgrade Reynolds SST V2.0 to the new Reynolds SST V2.1.  This upgrade will allow NDE applications to access current data from the latest version of Reynolds SST.
