Explanation of the SADIS FTP Service
The SADIS FTP service became operational in July 2005. This service is provided by the Met Office in the United Kingdom, and is available to all approved SADIS 2G, SADIS FTP recipients for primary delivery of data, and to ISCS/WIFS recipients (administered by USA) for contingency/backup purposes. This service provides users with an alternative, high quality internet-based mechanism for receiving WAFS and OPMET data. The SADIS FTP Service is an ICAO-approved distribution system and an integral part of the SADIS service.

A replacement to the SADIS FTP service - known as Secure SADIS FTP, and developed under oversight of the ICAO SADIS Operations Group (SADISOPSG) and ICAO SADIS Cost Recovery Administrative Group (SCRAG) - was launched on 18th November 2010. The replacement builds on the high levels of IT security and resilience currently available to users, and also address the issues of non-repudiation. Please see the Secure SADIS FTP Service information pages.
