Polar Operational Environmental Satellites (POES) Overview. Complementing the geostationary satellites are polar-orbiting satellites known as POES, S-NPP, and JPSS-1 (now NOAA).

NOAA is the first of the JPSS Series. Polar orbiting satellites constantly circle the Earth in an almost north-south orbit, passing close to both poles.

Following the decision to disband the National Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite System (NPOESS) program inboth the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the Department of Defense (DOD) made initial progress in transferring key management responsibilities to their separate program : $ Polar Operational Environmental Satellites (POES) The POES satellite system offers the advantage of daily global coverage, by making nearly polar orbits 14 times per day approximately miles above the surface of the Earth.

Polar-orbiting satellites include the Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP), NOAA Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellites (POES), Landsat satellites, and the French SPOT satellites. The DMSP and NOAA/POES satellites are operational meteorological satellites that normally provide complete global coverage on a daily basis.

NOAA currently operates the Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite (POES) program to provide daily global coverage of environmental factors useful in weather prediction and atmospheric monitoring such as cloud cover, storm location, and temperature.

Advanced data will detect environmental hazards, improve weather forecasts. Weather forecasters officially have a new tool in their arsenal, as the first satellite in NOAA’s new Joint Polar Satellite System has passed rigorous testing and is now operational.

The Comprehensive Large Array-data Stewardship System (CLASS) is an electronic library of NOAA environmental data.

The Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite (POES) was a constellation of polar orbiting weather satellites funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the European Organization for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT) with the intent of improving the accuracy and detail of weather analysis and forecasting.

oceans, land, and cryosphere —follow-on for the NOAA Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellites (POES) and NASA Earth-observing satellites (EOS). NOAA’s Polar and Geostationary environmental satellites are the backbone of life -saving weather forecasts and advance hazardous outlooks.

There is no substitute for the role they play. NOAA operates satellites in two complementary orbits—geostationary operational environmental satellites (GOES), and polar-orbiting environmental satellites, or POES.

The geostationary satellites orbit the Earth above a fixed location over the equator, allowing the satellites to travel at the same rate as the Earth's spin. CLASS is NOAA's premiere on-line facility for the distribution of NOAA and US Department of Defense (DoD) Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite (POES) data, NOAA's Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES) data, and derived data.

NOAA's operational environmental satellite system is a complement of polar-orbiting environmental satellites (POES) and geostationary operational environmental satellites (GOES). Both types of satellites are necessary for a complete global weather network. The Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS) is the Nation's new generation polar-orbiting operational environmental satellite system.

JPSS is a collaborative program between the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and its acquisition agent, National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

The JPSS program is committed to ensuring that the satellite user community is prepared to make the most of the imagery and data available from JPSS satellites, the United States' next generation polar-orbiting operational environmental satellite system.

The National Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite System (NPOESS) was to be the United States' next-generation satellite system that would monitor the Earth's weather, atmosphere, oceans, land, and near-space environment. NPOESS satellites were to host proven technologies and operational versions of sensors that were under operational-prototyping by NASA, at that time.

It supports studies of the physical and biological properties of land and ocean surfaces, and of cloud and aerosol properties. Once NOAA achieved orbit and was operational, NASA handed over the control of the Polar Orbiting Environmental Satellite (POES) to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

More Information. NOAA will provide a polar-orbiting platform to support environmental monitoring instruments for imaging and measuring Earth's. DOISST is adjusted for the differences between the satellite and in situ observations to compensate for platform differences and sensor biases.

DOISST integrates data collected by the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) instrument on board NOAA’s Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellites (POES) with in situ observations.

Weather forecasters officially have a new tool in their arsenal, as the first satellite in NOAA’s new Joint Polar Satellite System has passed rigorous testing and is now operational.
