Direct Readout Laboratory

NDRC Webinar (May 2019)

Virtual NDRC Webinar Series

On May 15, 2019 the NASA Direct Readout Conference (NDRC) Organizing Committee held the second in a series of webinars to facilitate communications among, and provide updates to, the Real-time (RT) and Near Real-time (NRT) remote sensing user communities.  Technology updates presented at the second webinar included NASA VIIRS Level-1 Software/Algorithm; Processing of Suomi-NPP VIIRS Data for Near Real-time Applications: Observations on VFIRE375 Active Fire Products; and NASA Black Marble.

The Ninth International NASA Direct Readout Conference (NDRC-9) held in Valladolid, Spain in June 2016 provided a venue for awareness and exchange of remote sensing science research and corresponding RT/NRT applications using Direct Readout and other low latency Earth observation capabilities.  A key outcome of the conference was the need to facilitate forums for ongoing communications among RT/NRT data practitioners, organizations that enable decision support system operations, and the end user community. 

Webinar Series Details
The webinar series will focus on NDRC-9 themes, topics and priorities, including updates on relevant science, algorithms, technologies, applications and systems  The frequency and topics of webinars in this series will be based on input articulated by interested participants.  Webinars will initially concentrate on Land discipline applications and broader topics, but may be expanded to include Atmosphere and Ocean disciplines.  Presentations, action items, and relevant meeting notes will be published on the NASA DRL Web Portal.
