19 November 2012 Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS) instrument transition to NASA and development status
Author Affiliations +
The Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS) Program is a cooperative program between the National Aeronautics and Space Agency (NASA) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to design, develop, and fly the next suite of US civilian polar orbiting environmental sensing instruments. The JPSS Program is a product of the restructuring of the National Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite System (NPOESS) Program, which occurred in 2010. With the transition to NASA, the JPSS instruments have undergone significant review with numerous updates to the designs as well as made significant progress toward delivering a superior capability to the Nation. This paper will discuss the program transition as it relates to the instruments and the associated transition review efforts, key findings, important changes to the instruments for JPSS and their current development status. The VIIRS instrument will be presented separately.
