Preparing for the next generation polar orbiting environmental satellite system, the NPOESS system is currently undergoing the design phase of the Program. The NPOESS Direct Readout Mission will service users in the field providing regional environmental coverage with two direct broadcast links, high rate data (HRD) at 20 Mbps and low rate data (LRD) at 3.88 Mbps. Contained within these two links are the suite of sensor data in order to generate 50 HRD and 29 LRD weather products via the NPOESS Field Terminal Segment software being developed for distribution to the weather community or by value added resellers.
