Paper Abstract

The NPOESS Ozone Mapping and Profiler Suite (OMPS) will collect data to permit the retrieval of the vertical and horizontal distribution of ozone in the Earth's atmosphere. Algorithm development efforts in connection with these measurements include the preparation of Algorithm Theoretical Basis Documents (ATBDs), Operational Algorithm Documents (OADs), and science grade code with associated test sets and documentation. These items are provided to the Interface Data Processing Segment (IDPS) for conversion and integration into the operational system. This paper addresses elements of the process being used to convert, test, and maintain the maturing and changing science grade code to the initial operational source code for the OMPS. The operational OMPS SDRs and EDRs will be generated by the IDPS, that is, ozone output items will include the sensor and environmental data records, associated metadata and product validation; e.g. ancillary data, calibration information and quality flags.
