加利福尼亚州范登堡空军基地——在加利福尼亚州范登堡空军基地Astrotech有效载荷处理设施内的一个干净房间里,一个巨大的标志被放置在试验台上,试验台上举行了美国宇航局国家极轨运行环境卫星系统准备项目(NPP)。卫星系统正在等待测试和检验程序,以便为发射做好准备。核电站是建造下一代地球观测卫星的关键第一步。核电站将携带为这个卫星舰队开发的第一个新传感器,现在称为联合极地卫星系统(JPSS),将于2016年发射。NPP是美国宇航局地球观测系统(EOS)卫星和即将推出的JPSS系列卫星之间的桥梁。该任务将测试JPSS任务的关键技术和仪器。NPP计划于10月25日从联合发射联盟Delta II火箭上的航天发射场-2发射。更多信息,请访问http://www.nasa.gov/NPP。图片来源:美国宇航局/第30通信中队,VAFB

VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. – In a clean room inside the Astrotech Payload Processing Facility at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, a large sign is placed on the test stand holding NASA’s National Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite System Preparatory Project (NPP). The satellite system is awaiting test and checkout procedures to prepare it for launch. NPP represents a critical first step in building the next-generation of Earth-observing satellites. NPP will carry the first of the new sensors developed for this satellite fleet, now known as the Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS), to be launched in 2016. NPP is the bridge between NASA’s Earth Observing System (EOS) satellites and the forthcoming series of JPSS satellites. The mission will test key technologies and instruments for the JPSS missions. NPP is targeted to launch Oct. 25 from Space Launch Complex-2 aboard a United Launch Alliance Delta II rocket. For more information, visit http://www.nasa.gov/NPP.
