Data sets consist of real time satellite data collected and transmitted
while the satellite was in radio contact with the receiving station as well as
data that had been recorded by the satellite stored on board and transmitted at
a later time. The Data Collection and Location System, (DCS), is designed to
obtain environmental data and location from fixed or moving ... platforms.
The telemetry data archived at the University of Miami is copied from 1 inch
tapes supplied to Miami by the National Environmental Satellite Data and
Information Service (NESDIS) in Washington, D.C. The telemetry data tapes
originate at Wallops Island Virginia and Gilmore Creek Alaska the two primary
government receiving stations for NOAA series satellite data and from Mombasa,
Africa. Miami decodes the 1 inch tapes, removes redundant TIP data from the
output, and reformats and copies the telemetry data to 6250bpi CCT.
