Join us online for another NOAA Innovators presentation on May 6th at 12pm Eastern, titled "WxLiveStream: Real-time Satellite Weather Data Streamed over the Internet."
Speaker: Dr. James Carr, Carr Astronautics, President
WxLiveStream is a subscription service providing subscribers without a GOES (Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites) Rebroadcast (GRB) antenna with real-time access to GOES-R data products over the Internet. WxLiveStream streams content as Network Common Data Form (NetCDF) packets to facilitate immediate consumption by low latency user applications. The talk will describe the genesis of WxLiveStream from a Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) project, its service offerings, and cloud architecture.
1. NOAA could offer a service like WxLiveStream
2. Building a high-reliability, real-time cloud application had its surprises
3. SBIR projects can evolve in quite different directions
