Description of Desired Capabilities The NASA Shared Services Center (NSSC) at Stennis Space Center anticipates a future requirement for an Agency-wide vehicle to procure real-time and archive satellite data, software license and updates for McIDAS software. McIDAS is a suite of sophisticated software packages for use with geophysical data, such as satellite and radar imagery, in-situ observational reports, and gridded numerical forecasts. McIDAS (Man computer Interactive Data Access System) and satellite data access (real-time and archive) are needed to support many atmospheric science projects, programs, and field campaigns in particular Clouds and the Earth’s Radiant Energy System (CERES), Department of Energy Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (DOE ARM), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) convective weather, Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Icing, and NASA Airborne Flight Missions (ATom, High Ice Water Content (HIWC), North Atlantic Aerosols and Marine Ecosystems Study (NAAMES), ObseRvations of Aerosols above Clouds and their IntEractionS (ORACLES), and many others). McIDAS provides a critical framework to allow real-time data acquisition and processing of satellite imager data from GOES-East, GOES-West, Himawari, Meteosat-9, and Metesat-7 operational GEO satellites to generate global cloud and radiative products used for NASA programs and projects. McIDAS software and its real-time satellite data server access critical underlying components that are used to feed processed satellite data and products to NASA Mission Tool Suite (MTS) to provide now casting, aircraft guidance, and mission planning to support NASA airborne field missions. 2. Comprehensive Requirements - Annual McIDAS Users’s Group (MUG) membership and multiple user site license and support for McIDAS-X Software. - Real-time data access to unlimited conventional and all geostationary meteorological satellite imager data using McIDAS Abstract Data Distribution Environment (ADDE) data services protocol - Unlimited data Archive access to 1.4 Petabyte of satellite data from 1980-present via McIDAS ADDE protocol 3.
