Title: STAR Enterprise Introduction and Overview

STAR EnterpriseIntroduction and Overview
  • Presented by
  • Alfred M. Powell, Jr

Where STAR Fits Among the Goals
  • STAR falls under Mission Support Goal / Satellite
    Sub-goal / Satellite Services Program
  • As Mission Support, STARs work cuts across the
  • Ecosystems
  • Climate
  • Weather Water
  • Commerce Transportation
  • As NESDIS, STAR seeks to crosscut and maximize
    exploitation of satellite information for
    science, operations, and societal benefits
  • Within the 5 Goals, all NOAA activities are
    allocated among 47 Programs
  • STAR participates in the (1) Satellite Sub-Goal
    and the (2) Modeling, Observations and
    Integration Sub-Goal.

Science Questions
  • NOAA Research Questions
  • US / IEOS Societal Benefits
  1. What factors, human and otherwise, influence
    ecosystem processes and impact our ability to
    manage marine ecosystems and forecast their
    future state?
  2. What is the current state of biodiversity in the
    oceans, and what impacts will external forces
    have on this diversity and how we use our oceans
    and coasts?
  3. What are the causes and consequences of climate
    variability and change?
  4. What improvements to observing systems, analysis
    approaches, and models will allow us to better
    analyze and predict the atmosphere, ocean, and
    hydrological land processes?
  5. How are uncertainties in our analyses and
    predictions best estimated and communicated?
  6. How can the accuracy and warning times for severe
    weather and other high-impact environmental
    events be increased significantly?
  1. Improve Weather Forecasting
  2. Reduce Loss of Life and Property from Disasters
  3. Protect and Monitor Our Ocean Resource
  4. Understand, Assess, Predict, Mitigate, Adapt to
    Climate Variability and Change
  5. Support Sustainable Agriculture and Forestry and
    Combat Land Degradation
  6. Understand the Effect of Environmental Factors on
    Human Health and Well-Being
  7. Develop the Capacity to Make Ecological Forecasts
  8. Protect and Monitor Water Resources
  9. Monitor and Manage Energy Resources

Satellite Mission Program SupportThe
  • Enterprise section discusses highlights from
    working with satellite systems
  • Their transition into operations
  • Calibrating the data
  • Integrating satellite systems
  • Use of the data
  • Satellite research output

  • The focal points for the Enterprise section
  • Highlights core programs representative of our
  • Research to operations approaches
  • Partnerships and collaborations
  • Seamless integration of missions and systems
  • Life cycle product enhancements
  • Education and outreach

STAR Challenges
  • Research to operations
  • Limited or no transition funding circumstance
  • Collaborative partnerships
  • Diversity of mission and priorities
  • Mission Integration
  • Future home of the most accurate products and
  • Examples of shoe string management
  • With good results and positive outcomes
