The NPOESS Preparatory Project (NPP) is a joint-agency mission to serve the National Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite System (NPOESS) Integrated Program Office (IPO) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and their user communities. The NPP provides the Earth science community with data continuity and also provides the IPO and its users a risk reduction demonstration of capabilities for critical NPOESS instruments. Current NPP architecture, status and schedule are key elements of this poster.
