Abstract:

The 11.3 billion Joint Polar Satellite System JPSS program has continued to make progress in developing the JPSS-1 satellite for a March 2017 launch. However, the program has experienced recent delays in meeting interim milestones, including a key instrument on the spacecraft that was delivered almost 2 years later than planned. In addition, the program has experienced cost growth ranging from 1 to 16 percent on selected components, and it is working to address selected risks that have the potential to delay the launch date.
