Joint Venture Partnerships

Abstract data waves surrounding Earth

The Joint Venture Partnerships allows NESDIS to prioritize engagement with the private sector, academia, and other federal agencies.  The Joint Venture Partnerships leverages new data sources and explores new and innovative technologies, instruments and missions that may develop NOAA’s next-generation Earth observation and ground systems capabilities. 

The Systems Architecture and Engineering office (SAE) oversees the NESDIS Joint Venture Partnerships.  Joint Venture often uses the Broad Agency Announcement process to select industry and partner agency proposals for study as potential pilots and demonstrations of the capability and feasibility of emerging concepts in missions, data systems, spacecraft and instrument design, and more.
