Radar Product Generator (RPG) -
Archive II Data Distribution
The WSR-88D network includes 129 NWS Radar Product Generators (RPGs) in the Contiguous United States (CONUS), 26 Department of Defense (DoD) RPGs, and 12 Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) RPGs. Each of these RPGs have a system - included with its hardware and software - that makes the base data (i.e., Archive Level II data) from the signal processor available in real-time to outside users. This system, the Archive II Data Distribution System, provides a real-time stream of base data from any WSR-88D. These outside users include other government agencies, private companies, universities and research organizations. These data are also transmitted to the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) for archiving purposes.
