CSPP Software Release: CSPP SDR Version 3.2.2 Patch for Linux CentOS-6

The University of Wisconsin-Madison Community Satellite Processing Package (CSPP) Team is releasing a Patch to the SDR Version 3.2 software (v3.2.2) that includes the following change:

    * A bug fix for CentOS-6 Linux users who have applied the Version 3.2.1 patch. The bug caused the VIIRS SDR software to fail.

The software also includes the following updates. These were previously distributed in the Version 3.2.1 patch:

    *An update from the VIIRS SDR Algorithm team that has improved handling of corrupt sections of VIIRS RDR Science data. This change also has a positive impact on downstream Environmental Data Record (EDR) product retrievals too, including CSPP VIIRS Active Fires.
    * A change in filtering input RDR ATMS and CrIS instrument inputs that can improve the output SDR geolocation accuracy. This filtering allows additional spacecraft diary data to be used at runtime for geolocation processing, and it results in ATMS and CrIS SDRs from CSPP agreeing with NOAA global data to within 10-15 meters. Without the patch, the CSPP geolocation can sometimes differ from NOAA global data by up to 150 meters.

The patch can be applied over an existing CSPP SDR Version 3.2 or Version 3.2.1 installation.

The CSPP Sensor Data Record (SDR) software supports the calibration and geolocation of the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS), Advanced Technology Microwave Sounder (ATMS), and the Cross-track Infrared Sounder (CrIS) instruments onboard the JPSS Suomi-NPP and NOAA-20 Satellites for Direct Broadcast users.

The Patch can either be applied as part of a new CSPP SDR Version 3.2 installation by following the instructions in the installation guide included at the CSPP download site (https://cimss.ssec.wisc.edu/cspp/download/), or onto an existing Version 3.2 installation by following the steps below.
Instructions for Applying the CSPP SDR Version 3.2.2 patch onto an Existing SDR Version 3.2.x installation
