About Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS). The Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS) is the Nation’s next-generation polar-orbiting operational environmental satellite system. It is being developed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and acquired with a partnership with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). JPSS will provide continuity of critical observations for accurate weather forecasting, reliable severe storm outlooks, and global measurements of atmospheric and oceanic conditions such as sea surface temperatures, ozone, and more.
JPSS, part of the National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS), implements the NESDIS Deputy Assistant Administrator for Science’s Level 1 oversight responsibilities. This includes defining requirements, integrating user systems, integrating partner contributions, integrating NASA-developed products into the NOAA architecture, developing the science necessary to deliver measurement products, storing, delivering, and archiving the satellite data, operating the space and ground segments, and representing the system to all entities internal and external to the Government including international partners.
About National Environmental Satellite, Data and Information Service (NESDIS)
The NESDIS mission is to provide secure and timely access to global environmental data and information from satellites and other sources to promote and protect the Nation’s security, environment, economy, and quality of life.
