NPP Instruments The NPP satellite has 5 instruments:
VIIRS, CERES, CrIS, ATMS, and OMPS. Each one will deliver a specific set of data helping weather prediction and climate studies. This video is a quick overview of each instrument and its placement on the spacecraft done at the Ball Aerospace clean room by the NPP Systems Engineer Rob Baltrum.

Why Another Earth-Observing Satellite? Why Another Earth-Observing Satellite?
To showcase how NPP will be used for both understanding the health of our planet now -- as well as how things might change in the future -- NASA producer Malissa Reyes joined TV meteorologists Topper Shutt (WUSA9), Veronica Johnson (NBC4) and Justin Berk (ABC2) in a "virtual world" of Earth science.

NPPy VideoCredit : [Conceptual Image Lab] NPPy: Big Planet, Little Bear
As we know polar bears are most affected by the warming of our planet and the melting of ice around the poles. That's why it is very important that satellites like NPP constantly monitor the Earth's health from space to help scientists build models and predict how climate is changing over time. In this series of animated videos NPPy the bear walks along with his mom and tells us what he's learned about the NPP mission and it's importance for everyone who lives on planet Earth. Follow NPPy in this and other episodes to come and find out more about his adventures and the NPP mission!

Dan DeVito videoCredit : [Conceptual Image Lab] NPP's Ground Project Manager talks about NPPy
The main character in the 'Big Planet, Little Bear' video series represents the NPP mission mascot who happens to be a little stuffed polar bear, named NPPy. NPPy was found by the NPP Ground Project Manager Dan DeVito in a place called Svalbard, located 600 miles from the North Pole. Since then, Dan and other people on the NPP project have taken NPPy along when they travel to different locations involved in the mission. So the little stuffed bear NPPy has travelled to every continent and learned a lot about how important the NPP mission is to life on Earth. Watch this video to learn more about NPPy and find out why he has so many pins on his vest.

NPP & The Earth System Credit : [Scientific Visualization Studio] NPP & The Earth System
NPP is a continuation of the existing Earth-observing satellites (EOS) and it builds on the legacy of multi decades of critical data. In this video, NPP Project Scientist, James Gleason (NASA Goddard Space Flight Center), summarizes the primary messages and explains the essentials of the NPP mission.
