The enterprise view of environmental satellites, a vision of a “system of systems” of spacecraft, sensors, and ground assets, is rapidly evolving from a concept to reality. It is driven by the need for government agencies and stakeholders to more effectively and efficiently obtain and share improved satellite data and data products for multiple applications under very challenging budget conditions. The enterprise view is being realized through the establishment of new national and international agreements to promote the sharing of data, and new organizational structures and system architectures to better collect, process, distribute, and use satellite data products from a constellation of satellites. A panel of senior scientists and managers will discuss the pathway and current progress in implementing this new paradigm.
