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 series instruments. The software operates as a server, ingesting packets from the baseband (digital) GRB data stream, decompressing and recovering the payloads, reconstructing datasets, and writing output to mission-standard NetCDF-4 format. Optionally, quicklooks can be generated from the ABI radiance product.

System requirements:

  • 12 core, 2.4 GHz CPU with 64-bit instruction support,
  • 32 GB RAM (minimum),
  • CentOS 6 or CentOS 7 64-bit Linux (or other compatible 64-bit Linux distribution),
  • 100 GB disk space (minimum).

Current Release: CSPP Geo GRB v1.0.27
