STAR Satellite Products
The United States invests billions of dollars annually in satellites that monitor the everchanging environment of the Earth. The Center for Satellite Applications and Research (STAR) adds value to this investment by offering sound, satellite-based information about the Earth.
The mission of STAR is to create satellite-based observations of the land, atmosphere, and ocean, and transfer them from scientific research and development into routine operations. In addition, STAR offers state-of-the-art data, products, and services to decision-makers. STAR is a leader in planning future satellite observing systems to enhance the nation's ability to remotely monitor the environment. STAR also calibrates the Earth-observing instrument of all NOAA satellites to provide reliable measurements for assessing the current conditions on Earth in a timely manner, predicting changes in conditions, and studying long-term trends in the environment.
