Town Hall Meeting: Early Successes from the Suomi-NPP Mission

The United States inaugurated a new era in environmental satellite monitoring capability with the launch of the Suomi-National Polar-orbiting Partnership (S-NPP) satellite on 28 October 2011. S-NPP provides risk reduction for new and improved sensors, data retrieval algorithms, and ground system technologies for NOAA’s Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS) whose first launch is scheduled for 2017. In preparation for NPP and JPSS, NOAA has developed new and improved data applications that can fully exploit the new capabilities of these satellites. During this Town Hall you will have the opportunity to learn how several of these new applications have already been successfully demonstrated and to better understand the impacts of their improved performance. For additional information, please contact Gary McWilliams (gary.mcwilliams@noaa.gov), 240-684-0597(office). A limited number of box lunches will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis, sponsored by Raytheon Information and Intelligence Systems, Ball Aerospace Technology Company, and IIT-Excelis.
