The Suomi NPP is a NASA/NOAA weather satellite launched in 2011 that was originally intended as a pathfinder for the cancelled NPOESS Preparatory Project, aimed to replace the older POES and DMSP fleets. Since its launch, it is now integrated into the Joint Polar Satellite System program. It is still active as of 2023
