•December 7, 1966:
   NASA launched the first geostationary Applications Technology Satellite
   (ATS-1), which had the ability to see weather systems in motion with the
   first Spin Scan Cloud Camera.
   The ATS-1 was capable of full-disk Earth imaging every half hour.

NOAA Cooperative Institutes

•   OSU Cooperative Institute for Ocean Satellite Studies joins a
    distinguished list as our fifth associated center for remote sensing
     – U. Wisc (CIMSS), geostationary instruments and products,
        advanced polar VIS/IR instruments/products
     – Colorado State Univ. (CIRA) , mesoscale meteorology, tropical
     – Univ. of Maryland (CICS), satellite climate studies
     – CCNY Consortium (CREST), remote sensing science and
        applications and minority student education
     – Cooperative Institute for Ocean Satellite Studies (CIOSS)
Proposal Process and Results

•   Only the second competitively awarded Cooperative Institute (the first to the
    Minority Serving Institute Educational Partnership Program was awarded to
    CREST last year)

•   Five strong proposals for remote sensing institute that all demonstrated expertise
    in remote sensing, involvement in the larger oceanographic community, and
    commitment to students

•   As the winning offerors, OSU showed both depth and breadth in remote sensing
    and proven record in producing both excellent technical results in NOAA relevant
    areas and increasing levels of service to the ocean community

•   Participants who contributed to the successful proposal should be commended for
    and proud of their hard work
Points to address

  •   NOAA mission and strategic thrusts
       – CIOSS students/faculty are likely very familiar with basic
          research missions of NASA, NSF. Not as clear about NOAA
          mission and science and their potential contributions
       – Commitment to academic connection through NOAA grants
       – Commitment to private sector through joint opportunities
  •   Role of satellites and associated ground measurements in global
      observing system
       – Why is CIOSS important just now
       – Opportunity to work the “tech transfer” problems that are not
          ordinarily supported by basic research sponsors
  •   Commitment to education of future scientists for NOAA and
      science literacy for the nation
       – Remote sensing training prepares students for science,
          engineering, and information technology careers
  •   Commitment to a diverse federal workforce

•   NOAA’s new strategic plan is setting directions in climate services, weather
    and water, ecosystems, coastal and ocean services, and commerce and
•   NESDIS supports all of these mission goals through its satellite programs and
    data management and archive functions
•   We look forward to the participation of CIOSS in helping us set science goals
    and directions for ocean and remote sensing sciences that support NOAA
•   We look forward to seeing your faculty and bright young students working
    closely with our scientists for all of our futures
