The National Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite System (NPOESS) Sensor Suite
217D (Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center)
During the past year the NPOESS constellation was reduced from three orbits to two and the number of sensors carried by the satellites was decreased.
This presentation will describe the restructured NPOESS sensors manifested for the revised constellation. This presentation will include the current developmental status and discuss opportunities for additional sensors on later flights.
