JCSDA Partner Agencies and Organizations
The key to the JCSDA's success is the partnership in which the resources and talents of several agencies are combined to solve problems of mutual interest. Shortly after its inception by NASA and NOAA, the JCSDA welcomed the Department of Defense (DoD) as a partner.
Partner Contributions and Roles
The JCSDA partners contribute to the mission by allocating personnel and infrastructure -- facilities, space and computers -- supporting JCSDA research and development projects. In addition, they pool funding for short-term, prioritized directed research projects by the partners, and support the annual opportunity for external researchers to contribute to the Center's mission.
