About NESDIS STAR ASSISTT PROGRAM

The NOAA NESDIS STAR ASSISTT Program specializes in transitioning systems from research to operations. We support integration tasks for several NOAA weather satellites by ensuring that a functional algorithm is in place and ready for operations. ASSISTT works with science teams and stakeholders to: conduct a standard set of project reviews; generate a standard set of documentation; develop and refine requirements; track risks and mitigation; clean code for coding/security, common data formats and metadata (CF & ISO), standard languages, tools, and libraries; test software; validate products, perform configuration management; and prepare the Delivered Algorithm Package.

About the Center for Satellite Applications and Research (STAR). The Center for Satellite Applications and Research (STAR) is the science arm of the National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS), which acquires and manages the nation's environmental satellites for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). STAR activities, integral to the implementation of NOAA's priorities, are aligned with and carried out in direct support of NOAA and NESDIS programs, strategic goals, and performance objectives. STAR’s mission is to accelerate the transfer of satellite observations of the land, atmosphere, ocean, and climate from scientific research and development into routine operations, and offer state-of-the-art data, products, and services to decision-makers.

About National Environmental Satellite, Data and Information Service (NESDIS)
The NESDIS mission is to provide secure and timely access to global environmental data and information from satellites and other sources to promote and protect the Nation's security, environment, economy, and quality of life. As a long-standing NESDIS partner, GAMA-1 works with NESDIS to provide data ingest, archive, and stewardship and redistribution of critical weather, climate, and ocean and weather model data.
