Welcome to the STAR Sensor Science and Cross-Cutting Technology (SSCT) Information Site

Task Order Overview (Synopsis):

The Sensor Science objectives are to ensure that the satellite data produced by each of the NOAA operational sensors are of high quality, and meet product requirements and user needs through extensive calibration/validation, scientific and technical research on sensor performance, characterization, anomaly resolution, re-calibration, and product validation by independent means. The cross-cutting technical services provide the science, program management and system engineering activities that provides the transition of satellite data, knowledge and technologies developed by STAR across the institutional boundaries of research and applications allowing end users the ability to transform satellite data into actionable knowledge. The Sensor science and crosscutting technology theme is part of the framework of the six work break down structures; Maintenance and Sustainment for Products and Instruments, Science Development, Science Research and Technology Development, STAR System & Supporting Infrastructure, Science Formulation, and End User and Partner Engagement.
