Welcome to the NOAA/NESDIS
Satellite Products and Services Review Board
NOAA’s Satellite and Information Service (NESDIS) develops and distributes
environmental satellite data products and services for all NOAA line offices
as well as for a wide range of Federal Government
agencies, international users, state and local governments, and the general
public. The environmental satellite data products and services include meteorological,
climatic, terrestrial, oceanographic,
and solar-geophysical areas.
The NESDIS Satellite Products and Services Review Board (SPSRB) is responsible for the oversight and
guidance necessary to effectively manage the product life cycle process from product development,
transition into operations, enhancements, and retirement.
The SPSRB Process Paper describes the satellite product life cycle including user requests for products
and services, which are submitted and evaluated through the SPSRB request tracking system. On the third
Wednesday of every month, the SPSRB holds meetings to discuss user requests and to reach decisions on
declaring both developmental implementation and operational implementation of satellite products and
services. Links to each of these SPSRB topics are provided in the left-side navigation menu along with
other useful links including the SPEEDS database and standards for documentation and programming.
