The Satellite Training and Operations Resources (STOR) VLAB page has recently been developed to serve as a “one-stop shop” for satellite-related resources for NWS AWIPS users. With GOES-R and JPSS recently coming online, the need to organize such resources was identified, so the page was developed and initially populated by the NWS/STOR team and satellite training community. In the future, NWS SOO’s will likely also be able to submit content.
The front page features recent and relevant news, a satellite training calendar, and a table of contents. The navigation bar and drop-down menus at the top of the VLAB can be used to access content from anywhere within the STOR. Examples of content include brief training material, relevant blog posts and sites, procedures, color tables, a forum for discussion, and more! Some of this material can be accessed directly from AWIPS/D2D via the AIR.

Enjoy this incredible resource, and let us know if you have any suggestions!
