The Ozone Mapping and Profiler Suite (OMPS) will collect total column and vertical profile ozone data and continue the daily global data produced by the current operational satellite monitoring systems, the Solar Backscatter Ultraviolet radiometer (SBUV/2) and the Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS). The collection of these data will contribute to fulfilling U.S. treaty obligations to monitor ozone depletion for the Montreal Protocol. OMPS has been selected to fly on the National Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite System (NPOESS) spacecraft – the next generation of polar orbiting environmental satellites.
