NOAADMT provides “CoastWatch/Ocean Watch Program Science Support” to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Center for Satellite Applications and Research (STAR), Satellite Oceanography and Climatology Division (SOCD). Under this contract, the JV provides program science support activities to STAR SOCD to enhance present capabilities with respect to ongoing improvements in the scientific development and utilization of improved, new and emerging data and products. The Center for Satellite Applications and Research (STAR) is the science arm of the NOAA Satellite and Information Service (NESDIS), which acquires and manages the nation’s operational Earth-observing satellites. The STAR center plans, coordinates, and conducts research and science development activities with NOAA, as well as NESDIS and other Government agencies, universities and international groups. Within STAR, the Satellite Oceanography and Climatology Division (SOCD) provides the primary research and science development support for oceanic remote sensing within NOAA. STAR’s mission is to accelerate the transfer of satellite observations of land, atmosphere, ocean, and climate from scientific research and development into routine operations, enabling NOAA to offer state-of-the-art data, products, and services to decision-makers.
