Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS)

The JPSS is a cutting-edge fleet of polar-orbiting satellites that provides a complete global perspective twice daily. Its invaluable data enhances forecast accuracy and extends the satellite data record for studying long-term climate trends. The JPSS plays an integral role in supporting NOAA's mission to build a "Weather-Ready Nation" by providing comprehensive insights into atmospheric conditions, oceanic dynamics, and terrestrial landscapes.
