The Department of Defense (DoD) launched the Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP) Flight 19 satellite on April 3, 2014, into the early morning orbit in support of environmental monitoring. It is now providing visible and infrared cloud cover and other specialized meteorological, oceanographic, and solar-geophysical information to fulfill the needs of military and civilian operations. In this presentation, the DoD will discuss the status of the DMSP constellation plus plans for DMSP Flight 20 and the status of the Weather System Follow-on (WSF) program.
