GOES-R Users and Data Access
National Weather Service Users
GOES-R products will be accessed directly through the AWIPS interface.
  Other Operational Users
Operational users will access GOES-R data either directly through the GOES-R Rebroadcast (GRB), or through network distribution
  General Public

The general public will be able to access GOES-R products and data from sources other than directly from the GOES-R ground system through multiple websites maintained by external organizations.
GRB Users
GRB users will receive the full level 1b set of GOES-R products directly from the spacecraft, through custom developed Earth stations. GRB is an extension of the current GOES Variable Data (GVAR) service. For more information on GRB and data distribution visit the GS Data Transition page.
  Network Distribution
Users requiring the full set of products (level 1, level 2 and level 2+) will use network distribution to acquire these products. Network distribution users using the GOES-R Access Point will have an established subscription with the Office of Satellite Data Processing and Distribution (OSDPD).
Product Distribution (PD) is one of the Core Ground Segment (GS) functions associated with GOES-R. PD is responsible for distributing level 0, level 1, level 2+ and all associated GOES-R data generated by the Ground Segment Product Generation (PG) function. Users of GOES-R data, including NOAA weather forecasters, research scientists, and the general public will have different means of accessing GOES-R data. Details about data recipients and data access are included in the table to the right.

Access to Archived GOES-R Data

Users requiring access to GOES-R data older than 7 days will be required to use the Comprehensive Large Array-data Stewardship System (CLASS) to access the archived data. For more information on how to access Archived GOES-R data visit the GS Data Transition page, or the CLASS website.
