NOAA's Joint Polar Satellite System original requirements have heritage from the early 1990's, and the first two satellite in the series were launched in 2011 and 2017. Although all of the data product requirements are traced to NOAA operational user requirements, many data products generated from the system are not currently used by operational users. JPSS works closely with the users and stakeholders to understand why this is and what are the impediments to operational use. Challenges can include limitations on data access or distribution, science related to use, user training, and communication. This paper will outline some of the challenges and lessons learned with JPSS related to meeting user needs.
