GRB Software Package

The GRB software processes the raw GOES Rebroadcast (GRB) data stream, generating products in real-time for all of the GOES-R instruments. The software has the ability to operate as a server, reading data directly from the antenna/receiver system via sockets, or to run as a command-line program, processing files containing CCSDS packets. The fourth prototype release processes a simulated, dual-channel GRB data stream, and creates ABI L1b, GLM L2+, SEISS L1b, MAG L1b, EXIS L1b, and SUVI L1b products in mission-standard NetCDF-4 format.

System requirements:

  • 12 core, 2.4 GHz CPU with 64-bit instruction support,
  • 32 GB RAM (minimum),
  • CentOS 6 64-bit Linux (or other compatible 64-bit Linux distribution),
  • 100 GB disk space (minimum).

Current Release: CSPP Geo GRB v0.4
