Paper Abstract

The NPOESS program merges the United States military and civil operational meteorological satellite systems. The convergence of both systems result in significant cost savings and most importantly increase system performance. An example of improved performance is the inclusion of an advanced high spectral resolution infrared sounder, which will greatly improve the accuracy of satellite temperature and moisture soundings and is expected to yield significant improvements in numerical weather prediction. Further benefits include nowcasting and climate studies.
