Abstract:

Environmental satellites have been an essential component of NOAAs global observing system for 25 years. This report offers a projection of NOAAs requirements for satellite data and services covering the next 15 years. These requirements derive from the mission responsibilities of NOAAs public service and research agencies the National Weather Service, the National Ocean Service, the National Marine Fisheries Service, and the Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research. The National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service operates the Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite POES and Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite GOES systems and provides data archive and distribution services to the public and private sectors. The satellite support needed to help meet their mission goals through the end of this century are presented as they have been identified by each agency. The requirements specified in this report will be a major factor in the long-range planning for NOAAs future satellite programs. Author
