The Earth Science Projects Division manages the missions which advance our understanding of the Earth.

ESPD's specific responsibilities include<br />Agency level programmatic responsibility for both ESMP and RPP. ESPD manages Earth observing missions at GSFC, <br />and provides a high-level science and customer interface. ESPD supports center competition initiatives and mission studies. ESPD Analyzes and recommends adjustments to budgets. ESPD coordinates reporting to Center management, NASA Headquarters and NOAA. ESPD provides administrative support, coordinates major reviews,<br /> as well as cross-cutting activities and initiatives. ESPD directs all efforts associated with mission formulation, instrument design and development; spacecraft design and development; ground system design and development, satellite integration and test; and mission operations through post launch testing and/or operation, and disposal.





Leadership and guidance is provided for the development and operation of missions under the Earth Systematic Missions Program (ESMP), with projects at GSFC, LaRC and JPL as well as missions under the Reimbursable Projects Program (RPP), with projects at GSFC and JPL.
