New Fact Sheet Tracks NOAA's FY2015 Budget Request for Satellites

As the House gets ready to debate the FY2015 budget request for NOAA, is delighted to present its newest free fact sheet:  NOAA’s FY2015 Budget Request for Satellite Programs.

The fact sheet briefly describes NOAA’s satellite programs and current policy debates about them and includes a table identifying the various programs with their FY2014 appropriated funding, FY2015 requested funding, and congressional action on the request.  Included are the JPSS and GOES-R weather satellite programs, Jason-3 (ocean altimetry), DSCOVR (space weather), COSMIC-2 (GPS radio occultation), and the new SIDAR (Solar Irradiance, Data and Rescue) program that replaces last year’s Polar Free Flyer.

This fact sheet and’s other free fact sheets are available from the left menu of our home page.

The fact sheet will be updated as congressional action proceeds on the FY2015 budget request.   The House is scheduled to debate the FY2015 Commerce-Justice-Science (CJS) appropriations bill, which includes NASA and NOAA, this week.
