On-board receiver data

The CDDIS began archiving data from flight receivers on board LEO satellites in support of the IGS LEO Working Group. Satellite data available in this archive include CHAMP, ICESat-1, Jason-1, and SAC-C. All flight receiver data are stored in RINEX format.

The starting directory for these files is:

ftp://cddis.gsfc.nasa.gov/gnss/data/satellite/.
