The Fleet Numerical Meteorology and Oceanography Center (FNMOC) produces large meteorological and oceanographic (METOC) data files in support of regional METOC centers worldwide. These data files can be from 50 megabytes to 1 gigabyte in size and can take up to one hour and twenty-eight minutes to send across a T-1 (1.544 Megabits per second (Mbps)) line due to physical limitations and network delays. However, not all of FNMOC's customers have access to a T-1 line. For example, the Naval European METOC Center (NEMOC) in Rota, Spain is hampered by an inadequate telecommunications infrastructure compared to Continental United States (CONUS) standards. This thesis addresses the operational feasibility of using the Global Broadcast Service (GBS), a global system of satellites providing a high speed broadcast service of video and data, for transferring large METOC data products from FNMOC to METOC regional centers around the world.
