Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (S-NPP) and JPSS-1 Sensor Data Record (SDR) Software Version 3.0 Release
12 October 2017New SDR packages supporting the calibration and geolocation of the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS), Advanced Technology Microwave Sounder (ATMS), and the Cross-track Infrared Sounder (CrIS) instruments onboard the JPSS S-NPP and JPSS-1 Satellites.
What is new in CSPP SDR Version 3.0:
This release replaces existing installations of CSPP SDR (it is not an update).
System requirements for CSPP SDR Version 3.0 have not changed from the Version 2.x releases:
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 and JPSS-1 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 the SDR products is HDF5, and descriptions of the S-NPP/JPSS-1 file formats are available here (see the Common Data Format Control Books).
Software, documentation and test data for this CSPP SDR Version 3.0 release are available for download following the link below.
