VADM Conrad C. Lautenbacher, Jr. U.S. Navy (Ret.) Under Secretary of Commerce for Oceans and Atmosphere NOAA Administrator Space Enterprise Council, U.S. Chamber of Commerce November 15, 2005 NOAA Where Science Gains Value Topics NOAA Strategic Goals NOAA Budget GOES-R Contracts Awarded NPOESS A Priority NOAA-NASA Research-to-Operations Office of Space Commercialization UAS Demonstration Google the Earth with GEOSS GEOSS Concepts How Can 22 Aerospace Companies Benefit from GEOSS? NOAA Strategic Goals Protect, Restore, and Manage the Use of Coastal and Ocean Resources through an Ecosystem Approach to Management Understand Climate Variability and Change to Enhance Societys Ability to Plan and Respond Serve Societys Needs for Weather and Water Information Support the Nations Commerce with Information for Safe, Efficient, and Environmentally Sound Transportation Provide Organizational Excellence and Mission Support NOAA Budget ($ in billions) Conference Mark 3 New GOES-R Contracts Awarded Series will continue geostationary satellite program. NPOESS a Priority Improvements will translate into weather models that lead to better forecasts and warnings and enhanced data and products needed for climate and ocean research and monitoring of space weather. NOAA-NASA Research-to-Operations Joint Working Group for Research and Operations Office of Space Commercialization Long history of promoting interests of commercial space industry UAS Demonstration A first for NOAA Aimed at filling critical research and observational gaps Google the Earth Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) GEOSS Concepts Information-Sharing During Disasters Agreement by all countries, governments and industry partners to share timely in situ and satellite information during disasters. GEONETcast Global broadcast system for the delivery of data, products and services in support of all nine GEOSS societal benefit areas, including reducing loss of life and property from disasters. Web-based Portal System Common web-based portal system for access to all Earth observation data, with specific links designed to increase use, quality and accessibility of existing information tools and networks could serve as the data base link to GEONETcast. How Can 22 Aerospace Companies Benefit From GEOSS? Access/provide the right information, in the right format, at the right time, to the right people, to make the right decisions. Open new markets, technology transfer and capacity-building for less developed countries with development aid organization funding. Ongoing dialogue with user communities, allowing industry to better understand requirements in terms of observations. Development of satellites and associated ground resources to ensure continuity of observations, such as NPOESS and GOES-R. Development of new missions needed to fill existing gaps and measure new parameters. Development of information technology infrastructure to facilitate one-stop shopping and ensure that vast amounts of data can be extracted and distributed effectively by and to a broad range of stakeholders. Development of standards to help ensure that systems are interoperable, including standards that are not platform/system/technology dependent. What Can 22 Aerospace Companies Do to Benefit from GEOSS? How Can We Help?
