Tuesday, November 10, 2020. 2:00 PM. Webinar: The Future of NOAA’s Satellite Observing and Data Information Systems. Vanessa Griffin, NOAA National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service. Sponsored by NOAA. More information here.
NOAA's National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS) is responsible for providing space-based data to support NOAA mission needs, as well as providing this data beyond NOAA to support myriad domestic and international users. In recent years NESDIS has begun to launch NOAA's latest satellite systems"JPSS and the GOES-R series"which have improved the data available for monitoring severe weather, for feeding numerical weather prediction models, for tracking characteristics of the oceans, and more. With these satellites in operation, NESDIS has begun planning for the satellite systems to follow in the 2030s and beyond, completing a multi-year cost-benefit analysis of alternative approaches to its future satellite architecture in support of NOAA Line Office needs. This presentation will preview the next-generation of capabilities NESDIS is pursuing. We will review plans for the next NOAA satellite systems, as well as new ways of doing business, expanded partnerships and joint ventures to leverage the capabilities of our international partners, other federal agencies, and the commercial aerospace sector, and new ground services necessary to generate the data products and services that our users demand in a rapidly-changing world.
