Distributed Project Office

The Distributed Project Office (DPO) develops communications, and coordination tools that facilitate TPOS 2020 integrated decision making, and provide access to relevant deployment and observing asset decision making tools. The DPO supports the suite of tools and activities required to track the commitments to all aspects of TPOS 2020 and to facilitate integrated decision making across networks, groups, agencies, and nations; during the project and throughout the lifecycle of the observing system beyond TPOS 2020.
