The White House, Presidential Decision Directive 2 (PDD/NSTC 2): Convergence of U.S. Polar-Orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite Systems (May 5, 1994) (full-text).
This Directive combined the existing military and civilian polar-orbiting satellite systems (the Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite program and the Defense Meteorological Satellite Program) into a single, converged national system — the National Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite System (NPOESS) — to reduce duplication of efforts in meeting common requirements while satisfying the unique requirements of the civil and national security communities.
