A User’s Guide for Installation and Use of FY-3 MPT/HRPT Data Preprocessing Software Packages for Linux Users
On 27 May 2008, the China Meteorological Administration (CMA) successfully launched the FY-3 polar orbiting meteorological satellite through its partners. While making the Earth observations, FY-3 continuously broadcasts within its coverage the raw MPT data (from MERSI instrument), which is packed in CCSDS format and raw HRPT data from all its payload instruments (with only exception of MERSI instrument) via both X and L transmission bands. To extensively share the FY-3 data, the National Satellite Meteorological Center/CMA has released 2 software packages oriented to Linux users: (1) FY3L0pp 1.1 version and FY3L1pp 1.1 version. Currently, they are capable to process data from the four instruments on board the FY-3 satellite, i.e. MERSI, VIRR, MWTS and MWHS. (Due to the abnormal functioning of FY-3 instrument IRAS, no processing software has been released for IRAS so far).
