SEPS Ground Segment (SEPS-GS)
SEPS Ground Segment (SEPS-GS) is an evolution of the SMOS End-to-end Performance Simulator (SEPS) used by L1PP team to simulate the MIRAS instrument and to generate Level 0 data.

Level 1 Processors (L1PP - L1API - L1OP - NRTP)
The L1 processors are applications that process SMOS Level 0 Products and generate Level 1A, 1B and 1C products.
There are five types of L1 processor:

The most recent Level 1 processor versions are given in the table below.
Level 2 Soil Moisture Processor (L2SM)
The L2SM processor is designed to retrieve soil moisture, vegetation optical thickness, and other geophysical parameters of interest from L1c data.

The processor prototype runs under 64 bits Linux and requires Matlab version 2009b or higher. Further software/system requirements can be found in Chapter 4 of the SRD. The Software User Manual (SUM) provides guidelines for the utilisation of the processor prototype.
The most recent version of the Level 2 Soil Moisture processor: 551
Level 2 Ocean Salinity Processor (L2OS)
The L2OS processor ingests L1C ocean products, together with ECMWF forecast geophysical data and other auxiliary files, and generates L2 OS UDP and DAP products and associated reports. The L2OS processor uses three different surface emission models to predict TB measurements and derives three L2 salinity fields through an iterative convergence scheme.
There are two types of L2OS processor:
Both processors run on Linux 64-bit machines: the OP has a command line interface, whereas the PP can be run either from the command line, or (usually) via a GUI. Both OP and PP are compiled from the same source code, using compile-time switches.
The most recent version of the Level 2 Ocean Salinity processor: 550
