... Given the program's limited funding, the first priority has been to keep NPP on track. Originally planned as a mission to demonstrate all the new NPOESS instrument technologies, companion algorithms, and data-processing approaches, NPP is now being pressed into service as a full-fledged operational element of the new JPSS program to help cope with the extensive delays that had occurred in the NPOESS program See "SORCE Extended Mission Proposal Submitted," in Solar Radiation and Climate Experiment Monthly Newsletter, February 4 March 2011, available at

... The mission now plays a key 8 role in calibrating the ISRO scatterometer and was strongly endorsed for continuation by the 2011 NASA Earth Science Senior Review process, with the applications subpanel ranking the mission as "high utility" despite the loss of antenna rotation.
