Our space-based active and passive sensing technologies are at the cutting edge of data collection for Earth observation. From hurricane tracking to crowdsourcing weather data, RI&S supports a number of critical missions to advance knowledge of our globe.
The Earth Prediction Innovation Center, or EPIC. The goal of EPIC is to catalyze community research and modeling system advances that continually inform and accelerate advances to the U.S.’s operational weather forecast modeling systems operated by NOAA’s National Weather Service.
