Town Hall Meeting: Advances in Direct Broadcast Capabilities and Applications for JPSS and other Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite Systems

Tuesday, 4 February 2014, 12:15–1:15 p.m.; Room C111

Direct Broadcast (DB) technology is rapidly evolving to better leverage the expanded observing capabilities offered by the new generation of polar-orbiting environmental satellites.  DB offers the user many advantages such as lower costs, reduced data latency, the ability to network with other DB sites to create wider regional or even global coverage, and, very importantly, the ability to combine data from other sources to generate locally-unique products.  During this Town Hall you will learn more about these new DB capabilities, actual user experiences and also community-wide software programs, such as the Community Satellite Processing Package (CSPP), which bring this DB technology to reality for worldwide DB users.
