2008 Satellite Direct Readout Conference
Miami, Florida – December 8-12, 2008

Welcome to the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) 2008 Satellite Direct Readout Conference web site. NOAA will host this year's conference from December 8-12, 2008 at the Hilton Miami Airport Hotel* in Miami, Florida. It will be proceeded by a GOES DCS User Working Group Meeting and a GOES DCS Training Session. These events will occur the preceding week and into the weekend. Exact GOES DCS dates to be announced as soon as they are available.

The focus of the conference will be on current GOES and POES data access, distribution, and preparing users for the upcoming changes to NOAA satellite programs. We will present users with information on APT, HRPT, GVAR, ARGOS DCS, GOES DCS, LRIT, EMWIN, GEONETCast Americas and other NOAA systems. We will also review the upcoming GOES-R and NPOESS Programs.

We hope to build on our earlier success in 2004 to make the 2008 conference even better. Approximately 200 administrators, managers, and scientists from 29 countries participated in the last forum that was held in December 2004.
