The Joint Center for Satellite Data Assimilation is a NOAA organisation which aims to enable the weather, climate and environmental analysis and prediction community to effective assimilate satellite data into their models and processes.

The goals of NCSDA are to reduce the time of the operational use of satellite data from 2 years to 1 year; increase the use of current satellite data in NWP models; promote the common models and infrastructure to allow effective collaboration between organisations; assess the impact of data from satellite sensors on weather and climate predictions.
