Before NOAA relied upon the provision of SEVIRI data via WAN line between EUMETSAT and NOAA Wallops CDA. Now they have extended their data reception to the new EUMETCast service provided to South America and parts of North America.
The reception system has been delivered by VCS. It includes a hot-standby system between the FTP based data collection and the EUMETCast system to allow for highest data availability to the American users for SEVIRI HRIT data.
