Online — The USA’s NOAA Satellite Services Division (SSD) provides a variety of environmental products, analysis, and services to their customers that aid USA Federal Agencies and the public.
The NOAA Satellite Information System provides essential information for satellite direct readout station operators and users of NOAA environmental satellite data.
While the emphasis is on the U.S. Polar orbiting and the GOES series of satellites, limited information is also provided for the satellites operated by other countries and agencies.
In addition, the Satellite Services Division of the National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS) provides real time access to satellite data and products for the public and government.
Some of the Imagery Outputs are:
- Tropical Atlantic/Pacific
- Severe Storm Sectors
- INDOEX (Indian Ocean)
- METEOSAT (Europe & Africa)
- MTSAT-1R (Western Pacific)
- Fire Products
- Operational Significant Event Imagery
- Precipitation Products
- Snow and Ice Products
- Tropical Products
- Winds Products
- POES Products (New!)
The Office of Satellite and Product Operations (OSPO) is part of the National Environmental Satellite Data and Information Service (NESDIS). NESDIS is part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and the Department of Commerce. OSPO is a newly created Office formed by merging the Office of Satellite Data Processing and Distribution (OSDPD) and the Office of Satellite Operations (OSO).
The new OSPO web site continues to grow; it will incorporate the comprehensive satellite information and derived products currently found on the OSO and OSDPD sites. During this process, you may be forwarded to pages on the existing sites until the transition is complete.
