A reminder that on 13 Sep 2022, 11:00-21:00 UTC, there will be a complete outage of GOES-16/17/18 data on the HRIT/EMWIN broadcast due to Ground System upgrade work. DCS and EMWIN data, GRB and delivery to AWIPS will not be affected.
Note this announcement extends the duration of the outage from 9 to 10 hours. OES-R ground system upgrades to an Oracle database and NFS (network file system) as part of EI (enterprise infrastructure) build 24.01.00, require data operations to go offline during the upgrade. This software patch/upgrade will be postponed if a Critical Weather Day (CWD) is declared.
