"The successful contract transition is an important milestone for the Joint Polar Satellite Systems, since ATMS is one of its key operational weather sensors", said Dr. Steve Toner, vice president of Northrop Grumman's Overhead Persistent Infrared and Azusa Programs business unit.

The JPSS-1 is the first in the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) next-generation of four polar-orbiting satellites that provide the majority of data streamed into weather forecasting models.

The satellite, called JPSS-1, will provide meteorologists with a variety of observations, such as atmospheric temperature and moisture, sea-surface temperature, ocean color, sea ice cover, volcanic ash and fire detection.

Three properties of Dawood Ibrahim auctioned in Mumbai
Summary: The reserve price for the three properties are Rs 1.21 crore, Rs 1.55 crore and Rs 1.18 crore respectively. After that, his properties were seized under SAFEMA (Smuggling and Foreign Exchange Manipulation ACT).

Ball Aerospace designed and built the JPSS-1 satellite bus, and Ozone Mapping and Profiler Suite instrument, integrated all five of the spacecraft's instruments and performed satellite-level testing and launch support. This interagency effort (JPSS) is the latest generation of US polar-orbiting, non-geosynchronous environmental satellites. It will also provide tracking of weather conditions and can be used to produce advanced weather forecast five to seven days out for events such as hurricanes.

With JPSS-1, the threat of a "satellite gap" due to aging satellite fleet should be allayed.

The five next-generation instruments on JPSS will be a major upgrade from NOAA's legacy polar-orbiting satellites. "The Flight 2 development, build and test have proceeded smoothly and follow the success of the Flight 1 instrument for NPOESS Preparatory Project". NASA develops and builds the instruments, spacecraft and ground system and launches the satellites for NOAA.

Hariri plans to return to Lebanon, warns of sanctions over Hezbollah
Next to Saad Hariri was a photograph of the man they alleged to be his captor: Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. Once he returns, Aoun tweeted, "we will listen to him about all circumstances, topics and concerns that need addressing".

On April 11, 2017, at Vandenberg Air Force Base, a United Launch Alliance Delta II second stage is hoisted into the gantry at Space Launch Complex 2.

The Joint Polar Satellite System-1, or JPSS-1, satellite - which will be invaluable for improving forecasting, detecting lost sailors, aiding firefighters, and other applications - is expected to blast off from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California at 1:47 a.m. PT, or 4:47 a.m. ET, aboard a United Launch Alliance Delta II rocket.

The Delta II rocket's window to launch JPSS-1 into the correct orbit was just over a minute long. One more Delta 2 launch is planned in late 2018 before ULA retires the workhorse rocket.
