AbstractThe RapidScat scatterometer instrument is a speedy and cost-effective replacement for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) QuikSCAT satellite, which provided a decade-long ocean vector wind observations. RapidScat was launched on 20 September 2014 and mounted on the International Space Station (ISS). The use of generic algorithms for Ku-band scatterometer wind processing allowed us to develop a good quality wind product in a very short time. The wind products with development status are available to users since early December 2014, only one month after the level 2a data became available. Operational status was achieved in March 2015. The good quality of the winds is confirmed by comparisons of RapidScat with NWP, buoy and ASCAT winds
