7A.5 Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS) Proving Ground Initiatives

Tuesday, 5 June 2018: 2:30 PM
Colorado A (Grand Hyatt Denver)
Jeffrey Weinrich, JPSS, Washington, DC

This presentation will focus specific actions taken by NOAA Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS) Program’s Proving Ground and Risk Reduction (PGRR) projects in response to real-world environmental events. PGRR Initiatives have proven to be invaluable forums for JPSS Program personnel to meet with NOAA Line Office subject matter experts, and representatives from federal, state, and local agencies to evaluate JPSS capabilities and how they can be effectively used in response to disasters. Status of all the PGRR will be given and path forward. Specific focus will be on new aviation weather initiative that is being started in the program.
