All my life, in fact before it began, Delta rockets have been flying.  It is sad to know that not only is the Delta II about to stop flying, the Delta IV's time is limited as well.  Congrats on this Delta II launch and hopes for the future Deltas that remain.

another video of launch taken from Coral Road.  Good clarity of solids separation.

So what is the DoD doing as the DMSP satellites fail?  Where are they getting the data that they need?

NPOES is dead.
DWSS is dead.

Are the NOAA polar meteorological satellites (legacy POES, NPP Suomi, and soon, JPSS-1) providing all the data that DoD needs?

Finally made it back out to the pad Monday afternoon to collect my remote camera.  Cleanup and pad refurbishment teams were onsite pressure washing the launch mount already.

Remote video turned out great, plenty of great audio and video of venting, launch and the cooldown of the pad post blastoff. Camera was only 270 feet SW of the vehicle, closest I've managed to post a camera thus far and the results were spectacular. A decent resolution one is posted here and a longer high resolution version will be on the L2 JPSS thread.

It was really meaningful to me to get a good shot of the final 9 booster Delta II leaving the pad, its long been my favorite launch vehicle.

Feeling nostalgic for the recent JPSS-1 launch?  Here’s the post flight.

New, next-generation NOAA polar-orbiting satellite is now operational

Advanced data will detect environmental hazards, improve weather forecasts

Weather forecasters officially have a new tool in their arsenal, as the first satellite in NOAA’s new Joint Polar Satellite System has passed rigorous testing and is now operational.

Launched last November as JPSS-1 and renamed NOAA-20 once it reached orbit, the satellite features the latest and best technology NOAA has ever flown in a polar orbit to capture more precise observations of the world’s atmosphere, land and waters. Data from the satellite’s advanced instruments will help improve the accuracy of 3-to-7 day forecasts.

“Improved weather forecasts can save lives, protect property and provide businesses and communities valuable additional time to prepare in advance of dangerous weather events,” said Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross. 

NOAA-20 provides NOAA’s National Weather Service with global data for numerical weather prediction models used to develop timely and accurate U.S. weather forecasts. In addition, high-resolution imagery from the satellite’s Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite, known as VIIRS, will enable the satellite to detect fog, sea-ice formation and breaking in the Arctic, volcanic eruptions and wildfires in their very early stages. This advanced modeling and imagery information, shared with international and governmental partners, will help businesses, the emergency preparedness and response communities and individuals make the best decisions possible in the face of weather-related hazards.

NOAA-20 joins Suomi NPP – the NOAA-NASA demonstration satellite launched in 2011 – giving the U.S. the benefit of two sophisticated spacecraft in nearly the same orbit. Each circles the Earth in a polar orbit 14 times a day, collecting global observations that form the basis for U.S. weather prediction.

“NOAA-20 is especially beneficial for tracking developing storms in the Arctic, Alaska and Antarctica. Forecasts for these remote regions are critical for the U.S. fishing, energy, transportation and recreation industries, which operate in some of the harshest conditions on the planet,” said Neil Jacobs, Ph.D., assistant secretary of commerce for environmental observation and prediction.

JPSS-2, the second in the series, is scheduled to be launched in 2021, followed by JPSS-3 in 2026 and JPSS-4 in 2031. JPSS satellites are designed to operate for seven years, with the potential for several more years. The JPSS mission will deliver its critical data and information for at least the next two decades to support a Weather-Ready Nation.
