Science - to understand and predict changes in climate, weather, oceans and coasts.

Service - to share that knowledge and informaiton with others.

Stewardship - to conserve and manage costal and marine ecosystems and resources.

Resilent ecosystems, communities and economies.

Environmental intelligence is critial to achieving the objective of all of NOAA's goals. NOAA is, at its foundation an environmental information generating organization. NESDIS Ground System Mission Line of Sight OSGS sustains, enables, and creates the systems and services that compromise the NESDIS Ground Enterprise. NESDIS Mission

To aquire and manage the Nation's operational environmental satellites.

To operate the NOAA National Data Centers.

To provide data and information services including Earth system monitoring.

To perform official assessments of the environment.

To conduct related research.

NEDIS is the world's most comprehensiev source and recognized authority for satellite products, environmental informaiton, and official assessments of the environmental information, and official assessments of the environment in support of societal and economic decisions. OSGS Mission

Sustain - Sustain NESDIS legacy ground systems and develop early, enterprise elements.

Enable - Transition and sustain next generation ground segments for JPSS and GOES-R

Create - Develop and deploy common Ground Enterprise Architecture Services.
