    The National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA’s) Office of Satellite and Product Operations (OSPO) maintains two primary constellations of environmental satellites: polar orbiting and geostationary satellites. Polar orbiting Operational Environmental Satellites (POES) missions contain sensors that generally support longer range weather forecasting and climate research. POES spacecraft are in a low-earth orbit which enables the collection of data from remote ocean areas, never more than six hours old, which fill forecast model gaps in data gathered by conventional methods. Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES) mission provide imagery and soundings in support of short-range warning and “nowcasting”. GOES spacecraft view of the earth provides for constant monitoring of the atmospheric triggers that forecast such severe weather conditions as tornadoes, flash floods, hurricanes, and hailstorms. OSPO ingests, processes and distributes environmental data and information received for the POES and GOES satellites to OPSO’s customers.

    The Maximus Satellite Missions Operation and Maintenance Support (SMOMS) contract provides support to OSPO in achieving their mission to manage and direct the operations of NOAA’s GOES and POES satellites; operationally command, control and track NOAA and partnership satellites; ingest, process and distribute satellite products; ensure that security, availability, reliability, timeliness and quality requirements are met; and to operate and maintain additional satellites as required to support the overall NOAA mission to understand and predict changes in climate, weather and coasts
