Science Investigator-led Processing Systems (SIPS)

NASA's Earth Science Data and Information System (ESDIS) Project supports data processing by providing Science Investigator-led Processing Systems (SIPS). Most of the Earth Observing System (EOS) standard products are produced at facilities under the direct control of the instrument Principal Investigators/Team Leaders (PIs/TLs) or their designees. The SIPS are geographically distributed across the United States and are generally, but not necessarily, collocated with the PIs/TLs’ Scientific Computing Facilities (SCFs). Products produced at the SIPS using investigator-provided systems and software are sent to appropriate Distributed Active Archive Centers (DAACs) for archival and distribution. Level 0 Data Products and Ancillary Data that begin the processing sequence are stored at the DAACs and retrieved by the SIPS.
