NOAA Satellite Information System
NOAA Satelite Information System

The NOAA Satellite Information System (NOAASIS) web site is a central location for finding information about NOAA environmental satellites (GOES and POES). Information is provided by various contributors within the National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS) and the external satellite community. This site provides information of particular interest to users who operate their own direct readout receiving stations.

The NOAASIS is operated by the Satellite Product and Services Division, Direct Services Branch, within the Office of Satellite and Product Operations (OSPO). In addition to providing assistance to the global direct readout community, the Data Services Branch has responsibilities for Search and Rescue Satellite-Aided Tracking (SARSAT) and the GOES and Polar Data Collection Systems (LRIT, GOES DCS, Argos DCS).


Select from the following:

  • Information Gateway:  Guide to all satellite information available on this web site.
  • Quick Look:  Direct access to limited navigational and operational information only.
  • Special Bulletins:  Announcements of satellite operations that may affect the receipt of data.
