Center (SEC) receives the telemetry stream directly from SXI, processes the data,
and integrates the observations into their space weather alert and forecast services.

they are immediately made available to the public, and preserved in a secure archive
for future research.SXi was launched in with GOES-M on Juy 23, 2001 Post Launch Test
