SUBJ:  "EMWIN SERVICES TRANSITION - 2016/2017" WEBINAR

ESTEEMED COLLEAGUES:

GOES-R, THE NEXT GENERATION OF NESDIS GOES SATELLITES, IS
SCHEDULED FOR LAUNCH IN OCTOBER 2016 AND SHOULD BECOME
OPERATIONAL IN BY OCTOBER 2017.  EMWIN DATA, NESDIS IMAGERY
AND GOES DATA COLLECTION SYSTEM /DCS/ DATA WILL BE
TRANSMITTED TOGETHER OVER THE GOES-R HRIT/EMWIN TRANSPONDER
AT 400KBPS.  THE INCREASED BANDWIDTH IS EXPECTED TO IMPROVE
THE THROUGHPUT OF THE EMWIN DATA STREAM. THE NEW SERVICE
WILL REQUIRE NEW RECEIVER HARDWARE AS THERE WILL BE A
RECEIVER FREQUENCY SHIFT TO 1694.1 MHZ, FROM 1692.7 MHZ
/EMWIN/ AND 1691.0 /LRIT/ AND A CHANGE IN MODULATION FOR
EMWIN USERS. A NEW ANTENNA OR ANTENNA COMPONENTS MAY ALSO
BE REQUIRED.

THE EMWIN DATA WILL BE BROADCAST AS COMPLETE FILES OVER
THE HRIT/EMWIN CHANNEL, WHICH IS A DEPARTURE FROM THE
PRESENT EMWIN PACKET STREAMING FORMAT. THE EMWIN FILE
NAMES WILL ALSO CHANGE FROM THE EXISTING 12 CHARACTER
FORMAT, TO A MORE LENGTHY WMO COMPLIANT FORMAT.  THE
EMWIN EIGHT CHARACTER FILES NAMES CURRENTLY IN USE
WILL BE INCLUDED IN THE NEW FILE NAMES, TO ASSIST
CURRENT USERS WITH PRODUCT IDENTIFICATION.

THE DECISION TO PLACE THE GOES-R SATELLITE AT THE EAST
/75-DEGREES W/ OR WEST /137-DEGREES W/ LOCATION HAS NOT
YET BEEN MADE.  A DATE FOR THE DECISION HAS NOT BEEN
ANNOUNCED.

THE NWS WILL BE HOSTING AND ONLINE WEBINAR AT 1400 EDT
/ 1800 UTC, ON APRIL 14, 2016, TO IDENTIFY AND REVIEW
