(U) A. Mission Description and Budget Item Justification

The Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP) is a fully operational joint-service program supporting all military services. Operational commanders require timely, quality weather information to effectively employ weapon systems and protect DoD resources. DMSP is the DoD's most important and often the only source of global weather data. It provides visible and infrared cloud cover imagery (1/3 nm constant resolution) and other meteorological, oceanographic, and solar-geophysical information. This data is required over the entire earth to support global and theater military operations. At least two satellites are required in sun synchronous 450nm polar orbit at all times (sun synchronous means the satellites cross the equator at the same local sun time on each of their 14 orbits/day). This program is in Budget Activity 7,Operational Systems Development,because it supports the current operational DMSP program. Vice President Gore's National Performance Review directed convergence of DMSP with NOAA's weather satellite system. In FY 98, DMSP satellite operations will consolidate with NOAA satellite operations at NOAA's Suitland MD Satellite Operations Control Center (SOCC).
