The GRAIL spacecraft will use high-quality gravity field mapping of the moon to determine the moon's interior structure.
The NPP Mission will provide atmospheric and sea surface temperatures, humidity sounding, land and ocean biological productivity, and cloud and aerosol properties.
NuSTAR will use high energy X-rays to search for black holes, map supernova explosions, and study the most extreme active galaxies.
The Radiation Belt Storm Probes will study Earth's radiation belts to improve future spacecraft operations, system designs and mission planning.
The Tracking and Data Relay Satellite System (TDRSS) consists of several operational satellites that provide in-flight communications with spacecraft operating in low-Earth orbit.
