The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is acquiring the next-generation weather and environmental satellite system, named the Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS). The Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (S-NPP) satellite was launched on 28 October, 2011, and is a pathfinder for JPSS and provides continuity for the NASA Earth Observation System and the NOAA Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite (POES) system. JPSS-1 launched on November 18, 2017. JPSS algorithms have the flexibility to process data from other satellites. This poster shows examples of data products from the new polar satellite as well as the status of the data release plan. The presentation will also focus on the utility of the JPSS data products from a user prospective.
