ECS (EOSDIS Core System)

From Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP)


ECS currently provides data ingest, archive and distribution services at three data centers that manage Earth Observing System (EOS) data. It also supports data management for 9 instruments on 7 spacecraft.


Raytheon developed the core components of EOSDIS and has continued its partnership with NASA to maintain and evolve its key elements.


To support a large amount of data ingested in the ECS system, nominally 2 terabytes per day.


Due to its success and adaptive ability, ECS will be considered for future missions.
