Second Symposium: Toward a Global Earth Observation System of Systems—Future National Operational Environmental Satellite Systems


The NPOESS Sensor Family

Thomas Kolesar, NGST, Redondo Beach, CA

NPOESS employs 13 sensor suites to provide critical, timely, reliable, and high quality space-based sensing capability to acquire and process Earth and near space environmental imagery and specialized meteorological, climatic, terrestrial, oceanographic, solar-geophysical, and other data products. The sensor suites are a combination of evolutionary developments from heritage sensors and longevity upgrades to existing sensors that are flying today. This poster provides detail on select sensors to include heritage and current status.
