  • Intro, relate story on good forecast enabling you to make critical meetingHighlight improvement in speed, quantity, and accuracy of data. We wrap this up at the end with a slide that shows how we are doing against these goals and put a ribbon on the briefing package. Also highlight international cooperation. Eumetsat, who will brief right after you, is a key partner supplying the data from the mid-morning orbit and we are working together to better define q joint system for the future. Working together we can find more ways to supply even better support and do it within ever more constrained resources.

NPOESS Transition to the Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS) and Defense Weather Satellite System (DWSS) NPOESS Transition to the Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS) and Defense Weather Satellite System (DWSS) Presentation Transcript

  • Environmental Monitoring System in Support of Civil and Defense Missions
    • Rapid data delivery 4x faster than legacy systems enables quicker reaction to changing conditions
    • 10x the data of existing systems
    • Accurate data - better forecasts
    • International collaboration
    • Can contribute to 19 of 26 Essential Climate Variables
    Transition to the
    Joint Polar Satellite System
    (JPSS) and Defense Weather Satellite System (DWSS)
    July 2010
    • Critical inputs to weather forecast models and global change monitoring
    • Science quality data to operational users and research scientists
    • Continuity of climate data records
    Global Weather, Climate, Hazard Monitoring System

    Outline
    • NPOESS Program and the Executive Office of the President Decision
    • Transition Approach
    • NPP Status
    • Conclusion
  • NPOESS Program Changes
    • August 2009 Office of Science and Technology Policy, Executive Office of the President, convened a Task Force
    • Assess options to ensure continuity of Nation’s weather and climate observation needs
    • Evaluated Program structure options
    • February 2010 Decision Announced

    Defense Program
    Defense Weather Satellite
    System (DWSS)
    Civilian Program
    Joint Polar Satellite
    System (JPSS)
  • NPOESS Restructure
    • Afternoon Orbit: NOAA/NASA responsible forJoint Polar Satellite System (JPSS)
    • Joint in JPSS is in reference to our international partnerships
    • Early Morning Orbit: DoDresponsible for Defense Weather Satellite System (DWSS)
    • Mid Morning Orbit: EUMETSAT responsible for
    • Ground System: Agencies will share a common ground system to be managed by NOAA/NASA
    • Agencies will share data from each orbit to meet the national need for weather and climate information
    • NPOESS Preparatory Project: Continue plan to launch NPP (PM orbit)
    • Working to October 2011 launch readiness date

  • Two New Programs!
    NOAA: JPSS
    Acquisition Agent: NASA
    Observations planned in the PM orbit for NPOESS are maintained
    VIIRS, CrIS, ATMS, OMPS, and CERES/ERBS remain
    AMSR sensor data from Japanese GCOM satellite to replace MIS for microwave imaging/sounding
    Accommodations for TSIS and User Services (SARSAT, ADCS, Direct Readout)
    DoD: DWSS
    Acquisition Agent: SMC
    Observations planned in the early AM orbit for NPOESS are under evaluation
    VIIRS, SEM-N likely
    MIS for microwave imaging/sounding under assessment

    Transition Approach
    • NOAA/DoD leadership agree to cooperate to ensure a smooth and transparent transition
    • Government Transition Team developed and executing Transition Plan
    • IPO team maintained and continue current efforts in parallel with Transition Team
    • NOAA/NASA management of JPSS program, NPP and shared Ground System
    • Maintain work on instruments, ground system, and algorithms that support PM orbit while transitioning those efforts to NASA/GSFC
    • Climate sensor acquisitions (CERES/ERBS, TSIS, OMPS Limb) continue via the NOAA climate program
    • International agreements for SARSAT and ADCS user services payloads remain in place
