The GRAS data are the first data from Metop-C having successfully been validated. Both Level 1B data and the ROM SAF Level 2 data now have operational quality.
The GRAS Level 1 data are generated with PPF (Product Processing Facility) version 4.6.1.
They will be distributed on EUMETCast Europe, on the High Volume Service Transponder 1 (HVS-1), using the following channel:
Multicast address: 126.96.36.199
Note: when the Metop-C satellite is declared operational, some elements of the filename will change, as follows:
‘EUMP’ will become ‘EUMR’
‘_t_’ will become ‘_o_’.
The ROM SAF Level 2 data which contain EUMETSAT’s bending angle data will be distributed on EUMETCast Europe, using the following channel:
Multicast address: 188.8.131.52
Example filename: S-GRM_-GRAS_RO_L12_20190106215155_001_METOPC_2130694591_DMI.BUFR
They will also be distributed on the GTS.
