Partners Overview

The JPSS Program works closely with its national and international partners, and facilities effective collaborations to ensure that they are prepared to utilize our satellite data and to make JPSS data readily available to support their weather operations and long-term research.

JPSS engages with partners in all facets of the program to include scientific research, user requirement reviews, and through operational and research distribution. JPSS also regularly interact with its partners at scientific conferences and through program outreach efforts. Through interactions with its NOAA operational users JPSS responds to their requirements by creating and managing documents and providing satellite products that meet those requirements. This data must be readily available to support real-time weather operations.

The JPSS also works closely with other users within the federal government and the international user community. The JPSS Program assists in applying scientific research to ensure that the data and products are of the highest quality. The program is also positioned to leverage continuing work from the NOAA research agencies and other national research organizations as well as the NOAA Cooperative Institutes.

JPSS's Direct Broadcast partners have become a critical part of the program's success. This partnership ensures that antennas and algorithms are available to provide critical data quickly to data sparse areas of the globe.

JPSS data is critical to protecting U.S. lives and property and the program is committed to providing this vital data to help minimize the impacts of weather and environmental hazards.
