SSAI’s mission aligns with the NOAA commitment to science, stewardship, and service to explore the Earth from the depths of the oceans to the outer edges of the atmosphere. Currently, SSAI supports continuous operations of the Environmental Satellite Processing Center and Satellite Operations at the National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service Office of Satellite Operations, the Office of Satellite and Data Processing and Distribution, and the National Ice Center. SSAI also supported the U.S. Mission Control Center for the Search and Rescue Satellite-Aided Tracking Program for more than 25 years, supporting rescues that saved nearly 7,000 lives during that time.
