• Support next generation acquisition programs by matrixing employees to the GOES-R and JPSS ground projects
  • Plan and prepare for transition of new systems into sustainment.
  • Facilitate employee opportunities to gain sustainment skills needed after these ground segments transition from development into sustainment.
  • Participate in transition working groups; focus on tech refresh cycles, processes, tools, and contracts.

GOES-R Ground Segment

Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites–R (GOES-R) Series

Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites–R Series)—the next generation of geostationary weather satellites replacing the GOES system—will provide continuous imagery and atmospheric measurements of Earth’s Western Hemisphere and space weather monitoring.

JPSS Ground Segment

Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS)

The JPSS provides operational continuity by replacing the POES satellite system making the same polar orbits 14 times per day. The first satellite launched in October 2011; the second will launch in 2016. The JPSS gathers global measurements of atmospheric, terrestrial, and oceanic conditions, including sea and land surface temperatures, vegetation, clouds, rainfall, snow and ice cover, fire locations and smoke plumes, atmospheric temperature, water vapor, and ozone.
