SSEC has been designing and building satellite ingestors since the mid-1970s. The first generation was the SSEC Desktop Ingestor (SDI), which were manufactured between 1997 and 2005.
The SSEC Data Ingestor (SDI-104) replaced the 1st-generation SDIs beginning in 2006. The next generation - the SDI GRB Appliance - is currently being developed.
