The scientists and data product engineers of the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (S-NPP) satellite's calibration/validation program use the Discrepancy Report (DR) Action Team (DRAT) process to log and track algorithm and documentation issues to ensure the success of the S-NPP Program. This process ensures that the satellite's data products are calibrated and validated to meet the Program's requirements and prepare them for operational implementation in the shortest time possible.

This poster will show how the different cal/val teams submit discrepancies to the DRAT, identifies the different types of discrepancies raised, and explains the algorithm change process which tracks a DR from discovery to the implementation of its solution.
