Polar-Orbiting Operational Environmental Satellites: Restructuring is Under Way, but Technical Challenges and Risks Remains
David A. Powner (au)
The National Polar-Orbiting Environmental Satellite System (NPOESS) is a tri-agency acquisition -- managed by the DoD & NASA -- which experienced escalating costs, schedule delays, & technical difficulties. These factors led to a June 2006 decision to restructure the program, thereby decreasing the programís complexity, increasing its estimated cost to $12.5 billion, & delaying the first two satellites by 3 to 5 years. The author was asked to: (1) assess progress in restructuring the acquisition; (2) evaluate progress in establishing an effective mgmt. structure; (3) assess the reliability of the cost & schedule estimate; & (4) identify the status & key risks facing the programís major segments. Includes recommendations. Charts & tables.
