Today, NOAA's National Environmental Satellite, Data and Information Service (NESDIS) provides critical atmospheric, land and oceanic data and products to various users, both public and private, from NOAA's geostationary and polar-orbiting environmental satellites.

This presentation will focus on an overview and a status update of the current fleet of operational satellites from NESDIS Office of Satellite and Product Operations (OSPO). OSPO collects, processes and distributes environmental satellite data and derived products about Earth's weather, atmosphere, oceans, land and near-space conditions to domestic and foreign users. It also manages and directs the operation of the central ground facilities which ingest, process and distribute environmental satellite data and derived products. Select examples of new product promotions will be discussed as well as data and product distribution, unique services and outreach initiatives.

Finally, the update with include information on the upcoming NOAA Satellite Conference 2015 for Direct Readout, GOES/POES, and GOES-R/JPSS Users, which is being planned for April 27 - May 1, 2015 in Greenbelt, Maryland (http://satelliteconferences.noaa.gov/2015).
