The NASA Global Precipitation Measurement Mission (GPM) Ground Validation (GV) program as a member of the broader NASA Precipitation Measurement Mission is providing ground and airborne precipitation datasets supporting physical validation of satellite-based precipitation retrieval algorithms.

The ITSC supports GPM-GV during all three phases of pre-mission, mission, and post-mission by providing a collaborative portal for communications between instrument teams, scientists and managers. Data from many missions are archived and distributed by the Global Hydrology Resource Center.

Since 2010 the ITSC has supported the following missions:
