Abstract : An analysis system has been developed to generate and maintain quality assured data bases for the Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP) missions. This system has been adapted and maintained through a host of PL computer system changes. The generic form of the data sets has been maintained through the various system changes assuring that the large quantity of existing software and analysis packages required no modification. This approach has resulted in a cost effective means of providing continuity in the on-going analyses being performed on the geophysical parameters measured by the sensors.
