The Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS) is our Nation's next generation polar-orbiting operational environmental satellite system. JPSS is a collaborative program between NOAA and its acquisition agent NASA.
Information about our planet is vital for the ability to plan, predict, respond and protect our Nation's lives and property. JPSS Science is critical to accomplishing this primary goal.
NOAA View is an interactive tool that allows users to explore NOAA data, including information captured by satellites. Browse, animate, and download high-resolution imagery of the world's oceans, land, atmosphere, cryosphere, and climate.
NOAA and NASA work together in a joint JPSS Program Office, which oversees the development of instruments, spacecraft, ground system and science. In addition to NOAA and NASA, JPSS is supported by a large number of contracting companies, academic institutions and research organizations.
