Sensor Configuration

Description

  • NPOESS bus sized to carry full sensor configuration

  • Constellation of 2 EMD and 2 Production satellites

  • Terminate CMIS; Compete new Microwave Imager/Sounder starting with C2

  • NOAA/NASA forecasting models and selected climate continuity preserved

  • Restructuring of NGST contract required; Renegotiation of NGST fee

  • All secondary sensor integration planned and budgeted for

  • DoD will lose day/night imagery in mid-AM for up to 8 years Gap duration contingent upon satellite performance

  • Contractor and government management continuity preserved

  • Core Sensors

  • AM: VIIRS, Microwave Image/Sounder,

  • SARSAT

  • PM: VIIRS, Microwave Imager/Sounder

  • (C3), SARSAT, CrIS, ATMS,

  • ADCS, CERES (C1),OMPS-Nadir,

  • SEM, ACDS

  • GFESensors

  • APS, TSIS, OMPS-Limb, ERBS, Full SESS, SUSS


Decision drivers

Decision Drivers

  • Continuity

  • Lower Risk

  • Growth Potential

  • Affordability


Management recommendations

Management Recommendations

  • Reviews

    • Complete an Integrated Baseline Review with all issues closed (12 months after cert)

    • Develop Effective MoA with DCMA supporting periodic joint surveillance reviews (including subcontractors), EVM analysis, and periodic estimate-at-completion updates (3 months after cert)

  • Contract Strategy

    • Implement DOD Award Fee policy as stated in 3/29/2006 memo, “Award Fee Contracts”

    • Revise award fee plan to specify effective incentives for achieving program goals (DOC IG recommendation)

  • Personnel

    • Fill vacant positions at IPO

    • Consider hiring a single highly qualified instrument manager for key sensors SE

  • Systems Engineering (SE)

    • Apply risk avoidance lessons-learned and develop alternate solutions/off-ramps for technical margins management

    • Establish a process to track progress and closure of recommendations from deep dives

  • Subcontract Management / Sustainment / Support

    • Update the Logistics Support Plan/Product Support Management Plan by Sep 06

    • Develop plan by Sep 06 addressing Diminishing Manufacturing Sources/parts obsolescence

  • Tri-Agency Management

    • Describe EXCOM / PEO / SPD day-to-day communications and key decisions process in a tri-agency MOA

    • Segregate responsibilities for program management and fee determination officer (DOC IG recommendation)

    • Develop management process to examine cost and performance trades

    • Obtain and review regular, independent evaluations of program status that thoroughly assess progress toward completing high-risk or otherwise critical tasks (DOC IG recommendation)


Preserves weather forecasting capability improvements

Preserves Weather Forecasting Capability Improvements

  • Afternoon orbit contains advanced imager and advanced sounder to enhance weather forecasting

  • Reliance upon METOP in mid-morning orbit

    • AVHRR vs VIIRS: preserves imagery resolution

    • METOPscatterometer and advanced atmospheric sounder enhance operational weather forecasting capability in mid morning orbit

  • Reduced microwave imager/sounder: no impact on civil weather mission–wind speed and direction requirements preserved

  • No microwave imager/sounder on C1

    • METOP scatterometer for ocean winds and waves becomes primary instrument until new imager/sounder is available on C2

  • Continue reliance on DMSP for ocean wind speed


Noaa impacts mitigation strategy

NOAA Impacts & Mitigation Strategy

  • CMIS: Ocean wind speed and direction

    • Mitigation: Rely on MetOp and DMSP

  • SESS: Space Environment Monitor

    • Mitigation: Fly POES operational SEM instrument

    • No loss from present capability on POES

  • APS: Aerosol data for air quality forecasts and role of aerosols in climate;

    • Mitigation: NASA still to fly first APS in this decade

  • ALT: Characterization of sea surface heights;

    • Mitigation: Navy developing mitigation plan for altimetry

  • ERBS: provides ability to understand changes in the Earth’s radiation budget

    • Mitigation: Fly NASA CERES research instrument on C1

    • Not flown on NOAA polar satellites today

  • TSIS: ability to understand changes in solar irradiance

    • Not flown on NOAA satellites


Maximizing longevity of noaa constellation

Maximizing longevity of NOAA constellation

  • NOAA N-Prime satellite launched delayed to 2009 to replace NOAA-18

  • Continue to rely on NOAA/EUMETSAT partnership on MetOp in mid-AM orbit

  • NPP satellite launched in 2009 provides imaging, sounding, and ozone backup for operational NOAA mission

  • Use of still functioning instruments of older NOAA satellites
