Paper Abstract

The JPSS preceded by NPP is our nation's future generation polar-orbiting operational environmental satellite system. The successful launch of NPP with the key instrument Visible/Infrared Imager Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) ushers in a new era of operational Earth observing capabilities in the afternoon orbit. Since Launch, the VIIRS Sensor Data Record (SDR) postlaunch calibration/validation has been progressing well as planned. This paper provides an overview of the VIIRS calibration performance postlaunch, the overall calibration/validation strategies both onboard and vicarious, and the team effort ensuring the high quality of VIIRS SDRs, as well as the challenges and way forward.
