Community Meeting Information

As NOAA formulates plans for the satellite programs that will follow GOES-R, JPSS, and SWFO and be operational in 2030 and beyond, we would like to hear from you – our data users, partners, and stakeholders – to help inform these important decisions. At the 2020 Community Meeting on NOAA Satellites, you will hear about the strategic objectives of NESDIS and about current activities and future plans for the Geostationary and Extended Orbits (GEO-XO), low-Earth orbit (LEO), and Space Weather programs.  

Session topics will also include NOAA ground system evolution, updates from international meteorological agencies, and recent feedback from our users about what they need in future observing systems. We will have dedicated discussion time throughout the meeting in order to hear from you, and we are planning “lean in” sessions where we will invite community members to share their thoughts about NOAA’s future observing systems. We look forward to your participation!

 Meeting Objectives: 

  • Discuss NOAA Satellites future program planning and formulation
  • Find out what we’ve learned about user needs from recent workshops
  • Provide opportunities for stakeholders, partners, and satellite data users to share thoughts and ideas on NOAA future satellite planning
  • Hear from international meteorological agencies about their satellite program plans
