The VAS geostationary satellite sounder demonstrated the exciting new opportunities for real-time monitoring of atmospheric processes and for providing, on a timely basis, the vertical sounding data at the spatial resolution required for initializing mesoscale weather prediction models. Abstract. A series of interrelated investigations has examined the analysis and use of VAS (VISSR Atmospheric Sounder) satellite data. A case study of VAS-derived mesoscale stability parameters suggested that they would have been a useful supplement to conventional data in the forecasting of thunderstorms on the day of interest. 2. Current use of Microwave data Use of ATOVS data The use of ATOVS data is summarised in Figures below, showing the satellites used, coverage in each 6-hour assimilation window, and the observation errors assumed for each channel respectively.

use the spacecraft‘s orbital motion to sweep out the area to be imaged. For example, a Landsat image requires 24 seconds of orbital motion. 3. Limited on-board data storage. Images are typically stored on a solid state recorder (SSR) until they can be sent to the ground. 4. Ground station availability. The data . Kristin Stock, Hans Guesgen, in Automating Open Source Intelligence, Introduction. Geospatial data is data about objects, events, or phenomena that have a location on the surface of the earth. The location may be static in the short-term (e.g., the location of a road, an earthquake event, children living in poverty), or dynamic (e.g., a moving vehicle or pedestrian, the spread of an. S C Pascall BSc PhD CEng MIEE, in Telecommunications Engineer's Reference Book, Attitude stabilisation. Stabilisation of a communication satellite's attitude relative to the Earth is necessary, in order that the gain of directive satellite antennas may be used to use satellite power efficiently and to permit geographical re-use of. Table 1: Overview of GOES S/C launches and S/C generations 5) 6). The GOES program is a key element in US National Weather Service (NWS) operations. GOES weather imagery and quantitative sounding data represent a continuous and reliable stream of environmental information used to support weather forecasting, severe storm tracking, and meteorological research.

  In the DMAIC framework of the Six Sigma Method, a Data Collection Plan is created during the Measure who already have a Six Sigma Green Belt training will know that it is a useful tool to focus your efforts on. It is a detailed document that describes the exact steps as well as the sequence that needs to be followed in gathering the data for the given Six Sigma project. Section 2.

The DCS collected data are retransmitted from the satellite to small ground-based regional data utilization centers. The system also allows for the retransmission of narrow-band WEFAX (Weather Facsimile) data to existing small, ground-based APT (Automatic Picture Transmission) receiving stations from a larger facility.
