SIT-20 (see next slides)

5 Slide 5 WGISS CEOS WGISS 24, DLR, Oberpfaffenhoffen, Germany, Oct 07 Constellations Workshop With inputs from Stephen Ward.

6 Slide 6 WGISS CEOS WGISS 24, DLR, Oberpfaffenhoffen, Germany, Oct 07 The Virtual Constellations 4 constellations –Ocean Surface Topography: Stan Wilson and Francois Parisot –Atmospheric Composition: Ernest Hilsenrath –Land Surface Imaging: Bryan Bailey –Precipitation: Chu Ishida 2 potential constellations in near-future: –Ocean Colour –Disaster (linked to DI-06-09)

7 Slide 7 WGISS CEOS WGISS 24, DLR, Oberpfaffenhoffen, Germany, Oct 07 Context 19 months since Principals endorsed the CEOS Virtual Constellations concept 4 pilot studies proposed and launched to test the concept –initial Teams assembled and study Leads volunteered –SIT Liaisons volunteered to ensure senior-level exposure and guidance –Some early workshops already successfully held SIT-authored Process Paper in progress - to guide future Constellation proposals and provide corporate memory –will continue to evolve with experience gained

8 Slide 8 WGISS CEOS WGISS 24, DLR, Oberpfaffenhoffen, Germany, Oct 07 What did the Constellations Concept set out to achieve ? (1/2) Move the CEOS dialogue from all topics & all agencies to focused discussions involving smaller groups of space agencies in their specialisations of interest Focus resources on a small number of implementation coordination goals to demonstrate what can be achieved and to inspire agencies to engage in the process Attract more senior-level support & resources from space agencies

9 Slide 9 WGISS CEOS WGISS 24, DLR, Oberpfaffenhoffen, Germany, Oct 07 What did the Constellations Concept set out to achieve ? (2/2) Apply a common standards or thresholds approach to: –Facilitate broader participation of space agencies large and small, established and emerging –Ensure that all players understand the criteria required for their contributions to be of value in a global context – eg the GCOS Climate Monitoring Principles –Provide guidance to aspiring entrants

10 Slide 10 WGISS CEOS WGISS 24, DLR, Oberpfaffenhoffen, Germany, Oct 07 Activities in 2007 Refinement of the concept name based on GEOSEC feedback: The CEOS Constellations for GEOSS –better reflects the context and purpose of our efforts –affirms CEOS as the space agency forum for GEOSS space segment Establishment of a Systems Engineering Office (Constellations SEO) by NASA: –technical resource funded by NASA and willing to support pilot and following Constellation teams with issues and obstacles as they emerge –trial application to the Atmospheric Composition Constellation –needs will vary from team to team Development of the 1st draft of the CEOS Implementation Plan for Space-based Observations for the GEOSS –Constellation efforts should be consistent with the targets therein

11 Slide 11 WGISS CEOS WGISS 24, DLR, Oberpfaffenhoffen, Germany, Oct 07 Workshop objectives Inform CEOS community of objectives and progress to date by the 4 Pilot Teams Confirm all necessary agencies are engaged and providing required resources Further develop the discussion on possible inputs from CEOS Constellations to the GEO meetings in Nov. 07 Theme leads to share concerns and seek solutions –provide support and guidance required by Leads –any issues related to the application of the SEO

12 Slide 12 WGISS CEOS WGISS 24, DLR, Oberpfaffenhoffen, Germany, Oct 07 Workshop Guidelines for Leads Pilot study objectives & outcomes (Proposal) –2007 outcomes (inc for GEO Summit) –Longer-term outcomes Participation & resources –current and desired –Actions required Progress in H –Progress planned in H (Work Plan) –Obstacles and issues requiring resolution by SIT Linkages to GEOSS Space segment and CEOS IP

13 Slide 13 WGISS CEOS WGISS 24, DLR, Oberpfaffenhoffen, Germany, Oct 07 Land Surface Imaging Constellation Objectives and Outcomes in 2007 Focus on mid-resolution (10m-30m) optical systems 3 primary objectives defined that address both near-term and long-term LSI Constellation goals: –establish agreements, among space agencies operating mid-resolution LSI satellite systems, to better cooperate; –develop preliminary standards for a mid-resolution LSI Constellation; –contribute to the production of a fundamental climate data record (FCDR requested by GCOS). Coordinated access to the global land surface imaging data needed to complete the UN FAO Forest Resource Assessment 2010 (FRA2010).

19 Slide 19 WGISS CEOS WGISS 24, DLR, Oberpfaffenhoffen, Germany, Oct 07 Coordination among CEOS, CGMS, and WMO in support of GEO (1/2) Review similarities and differences among CEOS, CGMS, and WMO, Opportunity/obligation for coordinated action to support GEO, GCOS, and other partners: –RSSC-CM for climate product processing, –GSICS for inter-calibration, –definition/implementation of the space-based GOS; –coordination is equally relevant for other GEO SBAs where CEOS, CGMS and WMO SP are active.

20 Slide 20 WGISS CEOS WGISS 24, DLR, Oberpfaffenhoffen, Germany, Oct 07 Coordination among CEOS, CGMS, and WMO in support of GEO (2/2) Proposed next steps were: –Enhanced information exchange; –Common documentation: Framework paper in context of GEO; Common GCOS IP Action Plan; –Annual leadership meetings; –Alignment of activities/infrastructure to support common partners and stakeholders: joint meetings, projects and reporting; –Scope/responsibilities: Review organisation and subsidiary groups: reduce redundancy; better allocate common resources.

21 Slide 21 WGISS CEOS WGISS 24, DLR, Oberpfaffenhoffen, Germany, Oct 07 WMO Space Programme major update of the space-based Global Observing System of WMO in order to : – to include climate needs responding to GCOS; –to use different orbit scenarios whenever appropriate; –to optimise overall design of current historical constellations GEO, LEO/SSO; will include long-term provisions for a number of observations through specific mission concepts for radio-occultation sounding, global precipitation measurement, sea surface wind vector observations, earth radiation budget and other observations;

22 Slide 22 WGISS CEOS WGISS 24, DLR, Oberpfaffenhoffen, Germany, Oct 07 Report on GEO WP Tasks (1/2) CEOS contribution to GEO Work Plan Tasks is performed through: voluntary involvement of CEOS agencies its Working Groups WGCV, WGISS and WGEdu, the direct involvement of CEOS Chair and SIT Chair; In general, actions where CEOS is Lead and Point of contact generally show good progress.

23 Slide 23 WGISS CEOS WGISS 24, DLR, Oberpfaffenhoffen, Germany, Oct 07 Report on GEO WP Tasks (2/2) Good progress on DI-06-09, potential virtual constellation for risk management Progress made in CL (GCOS) & CL (Sustained Reprocessing and Reanalysis Efforts – led by WGCV): reprocessing efforts for key variables identified in GCOS Implementation Plan are ongoing Progress on DA (GEOSS Quality Assurance Strategy – led by WGCV): draft guideline for data quality assurance (in line with the work of GSCICS) GEO Data Quality Assurance Workshop ( Oct.) 2007; CEOS Cal/Val Web Portal is under development and will be hosted by ESA; Progress made in DA (Virtual Constellations – led by SIT Chair).

24 Slide 24 WGISS CEOS WGISS 24, DLR, Oberpfaffenhoffen, Germany, Oct 07 CEOS Response to GCOS Implementation Plan 59 actions in CEOS Plan (Atmospheric, Oceanic, Terrestrial domains & Cross-Cutting issues): –21 Priority 1 actions: delivery of significant outcomes within a 1-2 year timescale; –32 Priority 2 actions : continuous, on-going actions, or actions which require additional information from potential contributors in order to be suitably defined; no necessarily delivery of significant result in the 1-2 year timescale. Proposed to defer related activities until all Priority 1 actions are being suitably progressed and further capacity is available; –5 Priority 3 actions, considered premature at this stage, were also identified;

25 Slide 25 WGISS CEOS WGISS 24, DLR, Oberpfaffenhoffen, Germany, Oct 07 Activities since Jan 2007 (1/4) Jan-Feb 07: –CEOS, assisted by GCOS, identified 21 top priority actions for implementation by space agencies in 2007 March-April 07: –CEOS Climate Focal points designated by CEOS members and associates to monitor progress within their respective agencies of the actions. 18 Climate Actions Teams created. –Each one animated by a Focal Point from various CEOS Agency. –Each Team is responsible for the executions of several Climate actions.

26 Slide 26 WGISS CEOS WGISS 24, DLR, Oberpfaffenhoffen, Germany, Oct 07 Activities since Jan 2007 (2/4) March-April 07 (cont): –Plan announced by NASA and NOAA to restore a key ozone layer climate sensor, the Ozone Mapping and Profiler Suite (OMPS), to the NPOESS programme (launch in 2009). Essential for the CEOS action # A-8. –Coordination between WMO GSICS programme and CEOS Working Group on Cal/Val (both led by NOAA).
