Navigation

The SDI POES Ingestor does not perform any navigation processing. Navigation exists on the SDI ingestor system for the purpose of serving the image data. The server requires navigation because it must navigate the images in order to process requests and subsect the images.

The navigation file used by the ADDE image server is the McIDAS format SYSNAV1 file. This navigation file is updated with the latest POES navigation information from the TBUS messages transmitted on the Domestic Data Service conventional data circuit. The TBUS messages are decoded by the McIDAS-XCD conventional data ingestor/decoder, filed into the SYSNAV1 navigation file and predictions made. Twice daily, the SYSNAV1 file is copied from the -XCD decoder workstation to the SDI ingestor workstation and placed in the directory ~mcadde/mcidas/data.
