The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is an agency of the United States government, responsible for the nation's public space program. NASA is focused on better understanding the Earth, exploring bodies throughout the Solar System with advanced robotic missions, and researching astrophysics topics. NASA's self-described mission statement is to "pioneer the future in space exploration, scientific discovery, and aeronautics research."
The Unidad de Tecnologia Marina (UTM), which translates to the Marine Technology Unit, is attached to the Mediterranean Center for Marine and Environmental Research (CMIMA) and located within the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC). UTM carries out technical and logistic support to research vessels and polar stations, as well as R&D activities in marine science driven technology. UTM represents a qualitative and quantitative progress of Spanish oceanography over the last decade, significantly contributing to the excellent results achieved by the marine science at national and international levels.
The Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Cientificas (CSIC), which translates to the Spanish National Research Council is responsible for the promotion, coordination, development, and dissemination of scientific and technological research, multidisciplinary, in order to contribute to advancing knowledge and economic development, social and cultural development. Dependent of the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation, the CSIC is multidisciplinary and carries out research in many science fields through its more than 100 centers around Spain.
The Ministerio de Ciencia e Innovacion (MICINN), which translates to the Ministry of Science and Innovation is the state department responsible for proposing and implementing government policy on scientific research, technological development, innovation in all sectors, and the coordination of public agencies with state-owned research.

The Florida State University (FSU) is a public institution located in Tallahassee, Florida. The university comprises 15 separate colleges and 39 centers, facilities, labs and institutes that offer more than 300 programs of study. As one of Florida's primary graduate research universities, Florida State University awards over 2,000 graduate and professional degrees each year. The school's Latin motto is "Vires, Artes, Mores," which translates to "Strength, Skill, Character."
The Center for Ocean-Atmospheric Studies (COAPS) is associated with Florida State University and is also located in Tallahassee, Florida. COAPS is a center of excellence performing interdisciplinary research in ocean-atmosphere-land-ice interactions to increase our understanding of the physical, social, and economic consequences of climate variability. COAPS scientists and students come from a wide range of disciplines, including meteorology, physical oceanography, statistics, and the computer and information sciences.
The Ocean and Sea Ice Satellite Application Facility (OSI SAF) is an answer to the common requirements of meteorology and oceanography for a comprehensive information on the ocean-atmosphere interface. One of the objectives of the OSI SAF is to produce, control, and distribute operationally in near real-time OSI SAF products using available satellite data with the necessary Users Support activities.
