Glossary of Terms. These data consist of Geos-3 altimeter measurements produced by NOAA/NODC/Laboratory for Satellite Altimetry. The dataset contains 5, altimetric sea surface heights and supporting information such as sea state, wind speed, Schwiderski ocean tide height, and Cartwright solid-tide height.

NASA Wallops Flight Center GEOS-3 altimeter data processing report. The procedures used to process the GEOS-3 radar altimeter data from raw telemetry data to a final user data product are described.

In addition, the radar altimeter hardware design and operating parameters are presented to aid the altimeter user in understanding the Author: R. Dwyer and H. Stanley. NASA Wallops Flight Center GEOS-3 Altimeter Data processing Report. NASA/Wallops Flight Center, November.

Wallops Flight Center Wallops Island, Virginia AC June on the Engineering Model of the GEOS-3 Radar Altimeter using the Test and Measurement: System report will contain test data from the Protoflight Unit and will present more analysis.

The GEOS 3 (Geodynamics and Earth Ocean Satellite) was part of a geodetic mission series lead by NASA. It launched on 9 April and continued operating until July The spacecraft carried a radar altimeter for mapping of the oceans, as well as a laser retroflector, and other tracking GEOS-3 mission was to measure the gravitational field around the Earth.

Excellent agreement exists between the aircraft remote sensor data, the buoy data, and the GEOS-3 measurements if the effect of tracking jitter is included in the GEOS-3 data processing. The average difference between the GEOS-3 measurements and the corresponding comparison data set values is shown to be m with a standard deviation of the.

Specifically it contains sections on: (1) general altimeter data preprocessing to be done at the Wallops Flight Center GEOS-3 Data Processing Center to correct altimeter waveform data for temperature calibrations, to convert between engineering and final data units and to convert telemetered parameter quantities to more appropriate final data.

Data Flow to/from Wallops To Wallops The daily near-real time GFO data flow from the Naval Oceanographic Office (NAVO), Altimetry Data Fusion Center (ADFC), Stennis Space Center, Bay St.

Louis, MS, to Wallops Flight Facility (WFF) consists of: • Science data without waveforms (ra_data) • Science data with waveforms (ra_cal_data). The Aircraft Office at the Wallops Flight Facility (WFF) provides for the operation, maintenance, engineering, airworthiness, and mission support of assigned aircraft as well as the planning and conducting of Airborne Science missions.

The Aircraft Office explores new areas of aircraft support and plans for capabilities to accommodate them, develop and implement rules and procedures.

of other reports have been prepared related to the altimeter data analysis. These will be referenced in the text of this report. The Altimeter Data. All data used for this study was transmitted to us on magnetic tape by the Wallops Flight Center. Originally, we received some data in the BCD mode.

The raw data files as provided by Wallops Flight Center (Ref. 1) contained all the necessary information to compute esti-mates of the geoidal heights from the GEOS-3 altimeter data.

Only the altimeter data taken in the short-pulse mode were used for the investigation. Three major stages of processing were used in ob. Data Providers - Partner agencies who provide data from NASA and other altimeter missions.

Altimeter data are used: As input into dynamic models for long term climate forecasting and prediction, and a complex data processing effort involving two NASA centers.

Two notable efforts nearing flight demonstration on sounding rockets are the Low-Cost TDRSS Transceiver (LCT2), and the Autonomous Flight Safety System (AFSS). The use of TDRSS as a space-based data relay system can eliminate the need for expensive downrange telemetry instrumentation, but are prohibitively expensive for low-cost flight programs.

likes talking about this. Wallops Flight Facility is NASA's only owned and operated launch range. See Visitor Center hours of operation. GEOS (Geodetic Earth Orbiting Satellite), NASA - GEOS Program.

GEOS was a US National Geodetic Satellite Program (NGSP). The NASA mission initiative of three spacecraft was of a study nature to test tracking system behavior experimentally and to unify the world's tracking datums to the m level of uncertainty with respect to the geocenter.

The ATM instruments are based at NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility (WFF) in Virginia. They commonly fly aboard the NASA P3-B based at WFF and have flown aboard the NASA DC-8, twin-otters (DHC-6), C’s and other P-3 aircraft. The ATM has flown surveys in Greenland nearly every year since Other uses have included measurement of sea ice.

Experiment Management. Experiment Management solicits and coordinates candidate small payloads on a continuing basis. This experiment brokering function is required to maintain the status of candidate payloads for a potential mission, and to assess priorities and technical compatibility, leading to an Agency selection process for a given mission.

Under the Proposed Action, NASA would reconfigure the main entrance to the WFF to alleviate safety concerns created by the current layout.

Launched in April from the Western Test Range and directed by the Wallops Flight Center, it spent its first year providing altimeter calibrations from the North Atlantic to investigators and conducting global satellite-to-satellite (GEOS 3 to A TS 6) calibrations, in addition to providing ground tracking data.

The purpose of this report is to document the GFO altimeter performance determined from the analyses and results performed by NASA's GSFC and Wallops altimeter calibration team.

It is the fourth of an anticipated series of NASA's GSFC and Wallops GFO performance documents, each of which will update assessment : D.
