Managing the development and operation of
NASA Headquarters and NOAA
Earth Science Decadal Survey Missions
ESDIS (Earth Science Data and Information System) The Earth Science Data and Information System (ESDIS) Project is responsible for providing scientific and other users access to data from NASA's Earth Science Enterprise.
ESMO (Earth Science Mission Operations) The Earth Science Mission Operations (ESMO) Project is responsible for spacecraft maintenance and operations for Earth Science missions conducted by the Earth Science Projects Division.
GPM (Global Precipitation Measurement) The GPM Project will improve ongoing efforts to predict climate, improve the accuracy of weather and precipitation forecasts and provide more frequent and complete sampling of the Earth's precipitation.
LDCM (Landsat Data Continuity Mission ) LDCM will ensure the continuity of Landsat data. It will make all Landsat equivalent data collected available at affordable cost to enable farmers, school children, scientists, governments and many others to continue to utilize this data for high quality research and applications.
POES (Polar Operational Environmental Satellite) This program benefits that directly enhance the quality of human life and protection of Earth's environment include weather forecasts, monitoring severe storm movement, ozone levels and animal migrations patterns to detecting forest fires.
ICESat-2 (The Ice, Cloud, and land Elevation Satellite-2 ) is the 2nd-generation of the orbiting laser altimeter ICESat scheduled for launch in early 2016.
