For six decades, NASA has used the vantage point of space to better understand our home planet and improve lives. A new interactive website called Space for U.S. highlights some of the many ways that NASA's Earth observations help people strengthen communities across the United States and make informed decisions about public health, disaster response and recovery, and environmental protection.
After substantial investments to build and launch sensors designed to observe the atmosphere, numerical weather and climate prediction have benefited greatly from the assimilation of satellite data. The overall improvement in forecasts include advances in modeling, computer power and observations. Satellite observations have also enabled fantastic advances in situational awareness for forecasters.

Data from space using lasers
Earth observation satellites play a key role in weather forecasting, climate research, monitoring of the planet's surface and the detection of forest fires. These tasks require satellites to transmit very large amounts of data to the ground for analysis. Today's radio systems are reaching their limits in this area.
Two of the UK's leading Space sector companies, Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd (SSTL) and Oxford Space Systems (OSS) have been awarded National Space Technology Programme funding to develop an innovative and stowage-efficient Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) payload.
