NASA is launching a new satellite system created to significantly increase the accuracy of weather predictions across the globe.
The ATMS instrument is the second flight model and is slated to fly on the first JPSS satellite in 2016. "The rocket is in a safe condition, the spacecraft, JPSS-1, is in a safe condition".
"Having more accurate data in those data-void regions and just more data in general that can be ingested in those meteorological models that we use me, as an operational forecaster, it can make those models more accurate because you have more reliable data", John Goff, lead meteorologist at the Burlington National Weather Service.
"It's always exciting to launch a satellite", Asbury said Friday. JPSS will provide more detailed information about atmospheric temperature and air moisture leading to more accurate near-term weather predictions.
Ball Aerospace designed and built the JPSS-1 satellite bus, and Ozone Mapping and Profiler Suite instrument, integrated all five of the spacecraft's instruments and performed satellite-level testing and launch support. NOAA funds and manages the program, operations and data products. But a bad reading on the first stage of satellite's United Launch Alliance Delta II rocket, as well as boats in the safety zone, forced NASA to call off the launch just minutes before liftoff.
Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE:NOC) will build and deliver the Advanced Technology Microwave Sounder (ATMS) for the Joint Polar Satellite Systems (JPSS) under a contract with NASA.
