Software Updates in CSPP SDR Version 2.2 Patch:
This update is distributed as a patch rather than a full software release, therefore users must first install SDR 2.2, then install the SDR 2.2 patch. The patch includes the following updates:
Software Updates in CSPP SDR Version 2.2:
Much more information is available in the Installation Guide that is distributed with the software. This release replaces existing installations of CSPP SDR (it is not an update). Please note that the CACHE and STATIC tarballs from CSPP V2.1 cannot be reused with this release.
The CSPP SDR software package is based on the Algorithm Development Library (ADL) software developed by Raytheon for the JPSS Project. ADL allows the operational processing algorithms for Suomi NPP to run without modification in a Linux environment. SSEC has packaged the ADL versions of the Suomi NPP algorithms so they can run from the Linux command line in real-time direct broadcast mode, but we have not changed the underlying processing software, algorithms, or data formats. The output files from the CSPP SDR processing software are identical
in naming, format, and structure to the corresponding files from NOAA/NESDIS.
The native format for NPP SDR products is HDF5, and descriptions of the NPP
file formats are available here (see the Common Data Format Control Books).
